Posted:I can find the more common ones like boric acid, but getting hold of stuff like strontium chloride is a nightmare, as it doesn't really have normal a household use.Everyone's like... what's it for... and I'm like "A flame colourant..." and they're like "Um, sorry, we only sell, like, pills and shit here. Sorry."No chemists will sell it, goddamit!And I really don't want to try and convince my school science department to order me some.Any chemists in London anyone know of that will whip up some for me?------------------"O! for a muse of fire, that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention." - William ShakespeareCheck out my Online Gallery!

Posted:I'm at a loss dude. I order it, it comes to my school. I'd try a chemical supply store, maybe someone will deliver it. I don't know what exists out there... sorry!

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:I'd go and talk to your teacher. But not saying : "how ca I get this or that chemical stuff" instead I'd ask him / her for his advice on "how to change the colour of a flame bla bla bla."they'll feel like they came up with the idea + think you are a passionate student (and not one of these pyro freaks

)and chances are high they'll want to help because they'll feel part of this adventure..know what I mean ?shine onCassandra

Posted:Now that's the way to do it Cassandra!I was about to suggest the same thing myself but it looks like you beat me to it.And there's no need to pretend you are interested in the chemistry side of fire, as confirmed pyros, we should all be taking a few more lessons.Let the man make some suggestions, if he doesn't come up with the right stuff (very unlikely) wait a few days, and say you found on the "net that strontium chloride..."And so on, let them help you, instead of just being the middleman.------------------Charles (INFERNO)newdolbel@hotmail.comhttp://juggling.co.nz

Posted:I went to www.sciencealliance.com and seemed to be able to buy anything I wanted. I know nothing about them and have never heard of them before but it's worth a shot. I also looked up Boreal (my supplier) but they seemed strict about only shipping to schools. Perhaps they get tax breaks if they only work with schools or something. There's got to be a way to get what you want. These are not particularly dangerous/crazy chemicals. The lithium isn't safe for eating anyway so I don't know if they'd be worried or not. I really don't know why y'all are having such trouble but if you DO work in/near a school you should be able to order it to the school and just put it on your personal credit card.I don't know the legality of this all as I'm not a civilian.
