Hello everybody, I am looking to get started on some small pyro projects and here to ask for some help/guidance as I get started in the hobby.
One of the first things I wanted to make is stars, specifically "Sizzling Green Magnalium Stars"
So I do not have a Formula for these and Nor Do I know the procedure to create them so I will need some assistance with this.
I have some books, I have the "The Wizard's Pyrotechnic Formulary" as a reference for some ideas but really require some help to be honest.
One thing is the size of these stars needs to be small enough to fit inside a fountain because that is one of my next projects and I would kind of like to be able to just go forward from this project and work together on the fountain project if possible. Meaning that I would want to also use these sizzling stars in the fountains.
The fountains I wanted to make are the Silver Titanium Gerbs Listed Here:
I have many questions about how to make those but that is for another post and another time, but.. the 3 aperture nozzle sizes listed are either:
5/16 inch, 1/4 inch, 3/16 inch
so Ideally I would like the stars to be able to fit into these.
Questions so far are what do I need for the ingredients, I realize there are many ways of doing things, different formulas and so on but, as some general starting point where can I start, as far as the formula?
and also, how do I create them? I would like for these to be cut stars to make things easier on me.
Do I just make green cut stars and then try to some how roll the magnalium on them?
This is one of my concerns because what I really wanted was the whole star mix to sizzle as well, meaning that the green stars were mixed with the magnalium in them already so that it would just sizzle until it was done burning as opposed to sizzling and then just burning the rest of the green star.
