I really recommend trying the Spanish Fuschia #1 formula. It's one of my favorite formulas, a very deep pink color.

KClO4 48
CuO 7
Sr. carbonate 11
Red Gum 10
Parlon 12
MgAl 200-325 8
Dextrin 4

Hi,

You may also try "Electric magenta". It's a modified version of the well known Ruby red formula.
Electric Magenta - rolled, pumped Potassium perchlorate 8 Strontium nitrate 38 Parlon 18 Magnalium (200 mesh) 12 Copper carbonate 10 Charcoal (airfloat) 5 Sulfur 5 Dextrin 4 Add 25% alcohol/ 75%water

(Copy and paste from pyroguide)

You can also use acetone and leave dextrine out.

Actually that's the - Purple Magnesium Star - Formula from BAFN II pg. 65. The term " electric " typically refers to a aluminum or magnesium tailed star. This is not a tailed star formula, as written. I shot some stars this past weekend using this formula, in a 3" mine and a 4" ball shell. To me, with my chemicals, its more of a purple than a magenta.
