Dip the looped wire into a small amount of BP/dextrin/water and allow to dry.
Dextrin may be easier to make than NC.
These little puppies will easily ignite BP/fountain mixes but Tajmiester is correct in saying that some electrical ignition compounds are much hotter burning.
As an alternative, you can dismantle 'Magicube' camera flash bulbs (carefully with eye protection).
Extract one of the bulbs, check that the 'dot' is still blue. 9 Volts from a PP3 battery will set one of these off up to 20m. They will ignite just about anything when fired.
