How To Make Blinding Red Fireworks Stars

This was lifted off one of the internet mailing lists and described as "blinding red firework stars," our thanks to "Gary" who furnished this. We haven't tried it, but since it smells similar to the legendary Independence "Ruby" red firework stars, we thought you should have it. If you have ever seen Independence's Ruby red firework stars, you know how stunning these red firework stars were.
