Chrysanthemum 6 Chemicals Kit (Star Plate Refill Kit)
This refill kit for making 5 lbs. of 1/2" cylindrical orange-gold Chrysanthemum 6 stars contains all the chemicals but does not contain a star plate.
In an hour, you can knock out hundreds of stars using a 1/2-inch star plate.
This kit contains all the chemicals needed to make about 5 lbs. of Chrysanthemum 6, charcoal stars:
- Potassium Nitrate, 3 pounds (#CH5304)
- Airfloat Charcoal, 2 pounds (#CH8068)
- Sulfur, 1 pound (#CH8315)
- Dextrin, 1 pound (#CH8107)
Buying everything in one kit saves you about 20% vs. buying the chemicals individually. If you want to add the 1/2" star plate, you'll save money if you simply order the whole 1/2-Inch Star Plate Kit.
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 need 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.
Follow our detailed instructions and videos and you'll have no problem making perfect stars the first time you try. Here's where to learn how to make firework stars using a Star Plate.
