If I may add my peneth here.....
Don't load up a thick walled tube with fast burning (Willow C 75:15:10) for a fountain - you may be in for BIG surprise. Fast burning BP should be used for lift or a bursting charge. You 'tame' it by adding metals, C etc. to slow the rate of deflegration to produce effects such as gerbs, fountains etc.
If you tightly tamp good BP into a tube you're moving toward the 'banger' type firerwork.
Try your Willow BP on its own unconfined first to check its rate of burning.
Once you've mastered making good BP you could easily make some Roman Candles using some of your fountain mix and dextrin to make the stars!
