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: http://grassrootsdiy.com/
All your instructables are amazing!!!!!!!! Can you hold the sparkler in your hand?????????????????????????
Aron, the 'safe' trick is to always hold the 'sparkler' in someone else's hand......have a great 4th. jim
Thanks! You can hold them in your hand, but it burns VERY hot. I would suggest wearing a leather glove and closed shoes in case sparks fall.
