Picture of Improved Pyrotechnics Powder Management

When mixing, crushing or handling fine powders for pyrotechnical use it is often convenient to work on a piece of paper to help gather, confine or pour the mixture; but often there are hastles including spillages, which is definitely not wanted.

To produce a better, albeit simple, way to manage fine powders I came up with this: The quickest way to limit those annoying hastles while keeping it readily disposable, quick to make and cheap to produce.

I introduce the Pyrotechnic Powder Pourer.

Step 1: Getting started

All that is required for this is a piece of A4 paper.

Firstly we need to get just half; a full piece works just as well but is slightly less manageable and has no real benefits over half a piece.

To do this we just need to fold the piece in half, unfold, and then cut along the folded line.

This method is useful for any powder in little amount!

Thanks for sharing it.

I love the way you've diagramised* your photos - it makes the creases of the paper far clearer.

* I think I just invented a new word.
