How about steel wool filament and a disposable camera flash mod?(high volt low currant) Similar to the old flash cubes. "I am sorry Dave, I can not do that."

You want paper and cotton not powder, i.e. "cellulose nitrate" / "nitrocellulose"?
Not easy to make without dangerous chemicals, but I'd suggest doing a search for those two terms.
