I would like to state, for the record: Pihko KP Blue #2 was disapointing. Next batch of blue stars will be Conkling Blue #2. The stars looked much more washed out then my old Conkling Blue #2, even after ascending a good 100 feet. My Conkling Blue #2 on the other hand has alwaus produced a deep blue that I have very much so enjoyed. The Pihko KP Blue #2 seemed to peoduce three different flame envelopes, one white, one purple, and one blue.

Good to know...do you have extra stars left? I may need some blue that is washed out (even though I agree with you 100% the deeper blue is much better). I may not be back to your thread, so I would appreciate a PM if you have a chance regarding Pihko KP Blue #2

If you want really intense blues, you should use either potassium chlorate based ones or ammonium perchlorate based ones. Potassium perchlorate blues suck.

Potassium chlorate is cheap ;)
