Posted:Has anyone expiremented with pyrotechnics in your routines? Seems a group of pyros like this would.
Here in the US we have what are called "sparklers". Small wire rods that emit a shower of sparks when lit. Safe enough to be handheld by children. If you attached a sparkler to each end of your staff near the wick, it would give you sparks for a short period.
What about Flash Cotton? Sold in magic supply stores, it burns very quickly creating a flash. Lycopodium powder (Dragon's Breath) is also used by magicians, this powder is only flammable when suspended in air and will not burn otherwise. If you threw a handful into the air and ran your staff through it you might get a fireball.
