Introduction: Diy 4th of July Pyrotechnics
Want fireworks, but your parents won't let you buy them? Sick of high prices? 10pm on the 4th and all the stores are closed? Whatever your reason is, you don't have to miss out on the fun. You can make your own fireballs for free!
WARNINGI'M NOT LIABLE FOR YOUR STUPIDITY. DON'T DO THIS UNLESS YOU ARE A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL. I ASSUME NO LIABILITY!
Step 1: Gather Materials
You only need:
-Sawdust. Finer particles are better, but anything will work.
-Trash can. Steel is best. This is sort of optional.
-Torch or piece of wood. You may also need a lighter or matches. (my torch has a sparker)
-Safety glasses. Better to be safe than sorry. Use a cheap pair, they might get ruined
-Large bucket of water, hose, or extinguisher. For when it gets ugly.
Step 2: Technique
Grab as much sawdust as you can in your hand. Sprinkle it over the torch. Pull the torch out after a second or so (when it lights). Try this unlit a few times to get the hang of it. As soon as you start sprinkling lean back. You don't want to lose hair.
Step 3: Do It!
Well, thats it. Now just go OUTSIDE away from trees or other flammable things and do step 2 with the torch (or piece of wood) lit.
Show off to friends and family.
