(I'm tired of searching for this one all the time)

Fireflies on Cocaine (or Flaming Shit Falls on You)
by Bill Kimbrough

Potassium Nitrate 46
Pine Charcoal 44
Sulphur 6
Magnalium, 30 mesh 10
Barium Carbonate 6
Starpol 4.5

"I like to take the pine charcoal as it comes out of the yard grinder, and put it in the ball mill for 10 minutes. Sift out (remove) what doesn't fall through a window screen, and just use the mixed granulation of the charcoal--Better charcoal effect. I mostly roll mine with starpol as a binder, but I have made the formula into comets, firework stars, and even tried it in lances. Pump, cut or rolled firework stars, worked good for me, but never use starpol as the binder if it is to be the outside of a color change firework star, as it will surely cause a moisture problem." -Bill


Here's a video of a rocket using the comp as a delay, and a 3" ball shell header with stars of the same comp.

I just coped a post of FrankRizzo's from another thread. This is a great formula! I cut a 1500g batch earlier tonight and it took 40% water/alc (75/25, 600g)! I subbed dextrin for the starpol. I'll put up a video of these as soon as I get em dry and in a shell.. For the smaller ones, they might even be ready tonight - things dry fast here in the winter.

Looking good! The flashy flashy glitter has a long hangtime. I've got a lot of 20 to 60 mesh magnalium here so I'll try it one day.

The URL didn't seem to work so I looked the vid up at pyrobin.

Thanks for fixing the url - here's a video of a 5" FSOY shell from my NYE '09 'display'. It's zoomed in a bit much but my wife's camera does a pretty good job of picking up the fireflies on cocaine effect.

Not bad at all! Great hangtime.
