Intro: Poor's Man Firework
If you are not able to get real fireworks here's your solution: Steel wool fireworks.
Steel wool fireworks look amazing and are a chance to impress your friends with some cool pyrotechnics. They are easy and cheap to make and are an opportunity to take some astonishing photos.
Step 1: Watch Video
Step 2: Materials
For this project you will need:
- Steel wool.
- Some rope.
- Thick electric wire.
- Scissors would be helpful.
- A lighter.
As you can see in the photo, cut a small piece of wool, then wrap it tight with some wire (we don't want the wool to fall while we spin). Now make a loop at the other end of the wire, tie the rope and cut it so it will be comfortable for you to spin.
It will be optional to put the wool in a metal tea holder instead of using wire but i'm not allowed to use the one in my home so...wire.
Step 4: Safety
This project is dangerous (I do not take responsibility for any injuries cause by it), when attempting it once a burning piece fell on my sleeve and made a hole in it. This is why you should wear a hat, glasses, gloves and long clothing.
Do it away from anything flammable or living.
Step 5: The Fun Part
Hold the end of the rope right, light the wool and start spinning.
For the best photos use the long exposure option in the camera.
Be careful and good luck.
