Step 1: Chemicals Needed
You will need as follows:
1.potassium nitrate (Its chemical formula is KNO3)
2. sucrose (table sugar)
supplies are as follows:
-three clean solo cups
-mortar and pestle
Step 2: Mixing
First you make sure to have a ratio of 70%-30% KNO3 to sucrose
Grind down the sugar and KNO3 to a very fine powder
Next weigh out 7 grams of corn syrup
Heat pan to 300 degrees

this process will take about 5mins
Step 3: Extract
Use Stirring Spoon to gather together the substance in a clump
Turn heated pan off to let the substance stick together
Scoop up with spoon and put in clear container or a pre-made fuselage
