Composition Type: Star, might be used for strobe pots too (didn`t test that yet)
Creator: me (inspired by the "forli nitrate red strobe" composition on passfire)
Color/Effect: Green strobe
The Composition: all ratios given in parts (weight)
Barium nitrate 71,5
Magnalium 20-60 mesh 24
Potassium nitrate 5
Barium carbonate 2,5
Red gum 2
Binder: 10% NC in acetone
Any Precautions/Incompatabilities: Soluable Barium compounds are poisonous, wear gloves and a respirator/dust mask while working with it!
Precedure/Preparation: Mill the oxidizers as fine as you can get them, do the same with all the other ingredients except the magnalium, finally put all components in a ziplock-bag and mix until uniform. Pour the mixture in an acetone resistant container and add as much 10% NC in acetone to get a workable "dough" and make cut stars.
As you can see in the video the stars are pretty hard to ignite, I did not test it yet but I would recommend a 75-50-25-0 priming with blesers #22 igniter + 5% MgAl and a final layer of good old meal prime.
Bleser #22 igniter + 5% MgAl:
Potassium perchlorate 75
Red Gum 12
Charcoal airfloat 9
The camera doesn`t show the true type of green that it is producing, its not that washed out, it’s the intense light output that overcharges the camera.

Moreover I think that the Copper(I)chloride can be substituted with Copper(II)oxychloride, because the “forli nitate red strobe” composition calls for Copper(II)oxychloride. I can`t say anything about storage stability since I developed the formula yesterday and now I am out of Barium nitrate…can`t wait to get my hands on that kilogram of Barium nitrate I ordered
