Star plates make perfect cylindrical fireworks stars with every pop of your star plate. In an hour, you can knock out hundreds of stars using this 1/2-inch star plate.
Each Star Plate Kit contains everything needed to make about 5 lbs. of Chrysanthemum 6, charcoal stars:
- 1/2-Inch Star Plate (#TL3006)
- Potassium Nitrate, 3 pounds (#ZCH5303)
- Airfloat charcoal, 2 pounds (#CH8068)
- Sulfur, 1 pound (#CH8315)
- Dextrin, 1 pound (#CH8107)
Buying everything in one star plate kit saves you about 20% vs. buying the chemicals and star plate individually.
You can use hand-made star composition with this kit (but be sure and follow our project instructions closely). You definitely do not need a ball mill.
If you're going to hand-make your star comp, you'll be using two screens--20-mesh and 40-mesh. If you don't already have them, you can get here at Skylighter. You'll also need a blade-type coffee mill (cheap at WalMart). Also, be sure your scale can handle at least a couple of pounds at a time.
