Introduction: How to Make Fireworks With Marshmallows?!

An interesting technique I invented for binding a sparkler. A good simple firework for the backyard pyrotechnic. Building fireworks is legal federally, but be sure to check your local laws before constructing any firework.

The composition used in this video:

Potassium Nitrate - 6
Granular Magnesium - 4
Charcoal - 1

It is possible that course aluminum could be substituted for the Mg. Many other compositions are also able to be bound with this method.

I am in the process of building a website! Here is what I have so far:
