Welp, looks like I need to make a post.

 

I'm new to pyro, but am lurking and devouring literature in the hopes of being able to make a magazine and start making comets and small stuff when I get home for the summer.

Been poking at the art for most of my life with great success in my mind....

 

Figured that I would actually learn how to do it in real life.

 

Cheers.

Hello everybody,
I have been interested in pyro for about a year after making a wireless ignition system because I had leftover radio modules. I recently set up a little laboratory.
I made my first set of 5x 3" shells yesterday with buell red and tiger tail stars. I'm about to paste them.
I would add a picture if I knew how.

Hello all, I'm fairly new to the pyro scene. I'm looking to learn as much as possible but when it comes to actually making something, I would like to stick to smoke devices for the time being. At least until I'm a bit more comfortable with the chemical compounds I would be working with. Just taking baby steps with this hobby. That seems to be the safest way. Eventually though I would like to make some gerbs and rockets. The only thing I've been having trouble with is finding dye powder for making colored smoke devices. I can only find red and yellow solvent dye. If anyone has a line on some other colors please let me know.

Hey y'all, I'm don, And this is the main reason regarding why I'm attempting to learn pyro, When was nearly 7 my Dad and older brother made a lot of fireworks; Rockets, salutes, shells, etc He had a book I forget the title of it but it explained somewhat detailed on how to create fireworks, Since then had a love for lighting up a dark sky and My poor taste of salutes, Anyway I periodically view the fireworks on the 4th and decided to try making a few fireworks myself, Came into this blind, Hope I can acquire some experience in this kind of hobby, Anyway cheers.

Hello, I am from Southern Louisiana. Just started making my own fireworks after years of wanting to. Not new to fireworks just making them. Had a successful 4th this year and been studying for about 2 years before I even attempted anything. Would be great to see if anyone else is from around my area. No pyro clubs anywhere close to me. Nearest one is almost 7 hours away that I found. Would be great if there was a search people by location on here to allow possible get togethers. Happy shooting and be safe.

Hello,

 

I missed this thread and posted elsewhere for my first post.

 

Anyway... A bit about myself:

 

I have been interested in pyrotechnics for quite awhile and have been e-firing scripted shows for the last three years. I recently took a PGI display operators course, I still need to fulfill the experience part of the certification but it is a start. I also recently received my type 54 FEL. I'm not sure if the FEL will be particularly useful for home shows but I  figured that I might as well get it. My next goal to to learn how to safely make black powder and begin making my own fireworks. Initially my plan is to work on flame effects to add something different to the home shows and eventually I would like to learn how to make shells.

 

I am located in Lapeer County, Michigan and would like to get in touch with local enthusiasts, I am primarily interested in the safety aspects of working with black powder. I am rather attached to my fingers and would like to keep them where they are. Seeing the actual process as well would be nice.  I have a mill and lathe along with other metal fab equipment and could trade work for some assistance.

 

-Eric
