DIY Fireworks


Just for fun...this isn't a real explosive like some of my previous posts, but it looks like it might put on a neat little show for an inexpensive price. Making your own fireworks is fun. I haven't had a chance to test this recipe, but it would be interesting if it works. I'll try it out when I get around to it. If any of you guys test this, let me know your results. Also, be careful not to let the can tip over. I don't want my readers getting hurt and trying to sue me or something.

  7. I remember when I tried to make homemade tomato soup and there was an explosion. I don't think I will try this.

  8. yeah, it looks pretty simple. i'd bury it partially or add a sandbag or 2 to make sure it doesn't tip over, but it seems pretty safe.

  14. I must say I'm a lot more comfortable with this project than your last posts, haha. Thanks. I'll let someone else test this before I do it, I'm pretty accident prone.

    the chemicals wont react even if mixed, so you shouldnt have any trouble putting it together.

  30. Just a little warning from the experience, try not to breathe the powder in or rub your eyes when it's on your hands.

    Stand away from the new showy bomb when you're watching it, please.

    ReplyDelete
  31. yeah watchman you should be able to add stuff to change the colours but i havent messed around with this recipe so i wouldn't know what ratio to use for the additives, but feel free to experiment.

  32. That non-dairy creamer is what burns well. Cool thing is it's not really flammable, it's just that it has a high surface area, and burns quickly. I love to do with with (pure cornstarch) baby powder at bonfires.

    What's really funny is to show off that it's "flammable" and then throw a whole bottle on, and watch everyone run off like it's a bottle of gasoline. Meanwhile, you can stick your face over it and everyone will shit themselves over your ballsiness.
