Green Star #2
Preparation: Dissolve shellac in boiling ethanol.

barium nitrate....................................7
potassium chlorate................................7
shellac...........................................2


Green Star #3
The composition leaves lots of ash. Ammonium perchlorate improves it (- Green star #4).
Mix Parlon with magnesium. Add 50 volume parts of acetone, mix well and mix in the other ingredients. If PVC is used, add the correct amount of the solution in THF to the other ingredients.

barium nitrate....................................50
lab grade magnesium powder........................32
Parlon or PVC.....................................18


Green Star #4
Mix Parlon with magnesium. Add 60 volume parts of acetone for Parlon, mix well and mix in the other ingredients. If PVC is used, add the correct amount of the solution in THF to the other ingredients.

barium nitrate....................................56
lab grade magnesium powder........................32
Parlon or PVC ....................................17
ammonium perchlorate..............................25


Green Star #5
This mixture can be improved using ammonium perchlorate (Green star #6).
Add acetone. Prime with black powder. Aluminum should be very fine, preferably dark pyro grade.

Barium nitrate....................................65
Aluminum (very fine)..............................10

Saran.............................................20
Red gum...........................................3
Sulfur............................................7
Aluminum (very fine)..............................10
Ammonium perchlorate..............................15
Boric acid........................................2
Dextrin...........................................2


Green Star #7
Beautiful green. Direct substitution of barium nitrate with strontium nitrate produces a nice red.
Dissolve shellac in boiling ethanol. Prime with potassium perchlorate based strobe prime

Green Star #15
The mix is not very sensitive although chlorates are present.
Dampen with 75/25 water/alcohol and cut or roll into 10mm stars. The red gum can be replaced with shellac. If shellac is used, dampen with 50/50 water alcohol.

Potassium perchlorate.............................22
Barium chlorate...................................43
Barium nitrate....................................9
