Ammonium perchlorate - 5
Charcoal - 3
Table salt - 1
I bind it with liquid starch during the cutting process, though I'm sure Dextrin, SGRS, or just about any other binder would do fine. Obviously the table salt is the coloring agent. These stars are quite long burning, though rather bright and beautiful.
Here's a video, though it is quite poor: (Please watch in HQ)
As you can see they need a prime, which I have not found yet. Since I do not have KClO4 I'm out of luck with the traditional AP primes. If anyone knows of one that has AP as the oxidizer I'd be glad to know it. Also if anyone would like to replace the AP in this composition with KClO4 and give it a test I'd be interested to see it.
Truly they are great looking stars, it's to bad all I have for video of them is that small and inferior shell. I'll try to get more video of them soon, though I'll have to make more. Hopefully I'll have a prime by then.
