I found this firework on http://www.wichitabuggywhip.com/fireworks/mouseturds.html. I had never heard of that style of stars before and I wanted to give it some publicity.

What mixtures do you use for these stars? I am trying to make some fireworks for the 4th and I have most of the process figured out and working but my stars are not too good. They fall apart or don't light that easily.

I have some fountain mixture I made with KNO3 defficient BP and some shtty Al powder which is tested and does work well for fountains. I am hoping that with a binder like sugar that can make a "D1 glitter" star (without binder they fall apart in tests).
