Bind with Acetone for cut stars or add an additional 5% dextrin and bind with water if you want to roll them. Prime with something like fencepost prime.

I've also heard good things about using Barium/Strontium to achieve a good yellow, ratios around 37.8 : 23.2 which might need tweaking. I'd be interested to hear if you find a good matched pair of formulas - aqua/lemon is a really nice combination.

I do use optical colors for yellows and oranges now. Creepin_Pyro has the ratio written in an odd way, but that is about what I use. It's 55:35, which does only add to 90. It's approximately 61:39. This is green:red by the way. It's a beautiful, canary or lemon yellow. You can mix two different formulas in the ratios you want, but I find it easiest to use a red and green set of formulas that either have strontium and barium nitrate or strontium and barium carbonate used interchangeably such as ruby red and emerald green. Then you can just use the correct ratio of barium and strontium, and the rest of the formula is the same.
