This is a composition I made tonight, because long time ago I promised to do a cheap one with available chemicals. It burns with a nice deep green. Not as deep as Mg, but excellent for aluminum based green

Barium nitrate: 110
Aluminum fine bright or dark very fine: 25 (Won't work with atomized or coarse). Optimized for the russian PAP-2
Sulfur: 10
PVC: 27
Dextrin: +8 (increase barium nitrate to 120). Bind with wheat starch if using Al bright stearin coated.
Boric acid in solution: +1 (optional, wise to add if using Al dark and water)

Formation: cut or pressed. Will be very difficult to roll with this bright Al. Maybe easier with dark Al.

The comp will experience a bit more of a tweaking. It will need a very hot prime, as it is hard to ignite.
