Posted:I do not know all the colours but adding pottassium makes it go purple.

However if you do a search for coloured flames you will see loads of posts.

they give u alot of info, just remember to mix your powders with an alcohol based liquid, or they dont work.

Posted:I haven't done it but I understand that the alcohol-based fuel you have to use is so weak, it's almost pointless. I once saw a pic of a colour flame on one poi and a regular kero flame on the other. The difference was astounding. I don't know where it is, but I think it was Mark P of this board that was hosting it somewhere.

But that's all explained, over and over and over again, in the old threads...

Posted:my friend embedded the coloring in wax and dry coated the wicks with it. She used unpacked gunpowder and some sort of oxidiser (solidox maybe) to create a great bright color with colored smoke to boot. alot like fog, leaves good trails. only issue is its hot and can burn through the wire cages its put in. also you can't hit any hair or even come close

Q:What's the difference between the Great Highland Bagpipes and the Northumbrian Pipes?
A:The Great Highland Pipes burn longer.
