When the paint has completely dried mix a small amount of rock hard with water. Fill the bottom of the middle tube 1/4" from bottom to make a plug for your flashpowder.

Turn the tubes to the top side. Take the flashpowder (10grams) and pour into middle tube with plug in bottom.

Insert wick into middle tube.

Step 5: Top of TNT

Well this is how it worked for me. This project was a homeschool math lesson in weights and measuring and a history on fireworks.

You could split the wick to the other tubes of the TNT just like this

RCRiley (author)Misac-kun2014-03-06

Great idea!! I could try that on my next project. Since I only used 10grams in the middle tube, and I believe the safe limit is 50 grams per bomb in a rural area, I could do 10 grams in 5 tubes and split the wick like you suggested. Thanks.

Did it really blow up? Or just "flash"?

RCRiley (author)14gfraley2014-03-05

The TNT did blow up. I have the video but wasn't sure I could add it to my Instructable.
