However, I have produced a passable lilac/pink colour using KNO3 as an oxidiser and colour imparter. I don?t remember the formula, but it was basically a BP mix bound with shellac.
A good yellow can be produced with sodium nitrate (which is cheap and easily available). See this post for a description.
PS, the three chlorides you mentioned are rarely used, I believe mostly due to problems with hydroscopicity and chloride/chlorate incomptability.
