Hi all

 

Does anyone know a formula similar to that used in those indoor fountains you get for cakes these days. They burn with almost no smoke and it looks like iron filings or steel filings in the mix. It's a very clean burn and I imagine will be low toxicity!

 

Thanks

They are based on nitrocellulose, plus aluminium I would guess...

I was told that the ice fountain formula includes nitrocellulose and mica particles. BUT at 45p to £1 each from a party shop why bother?!?

Arthur is right, its mica particles, not metal

 For some it is not just the destination but the journey that adds to the joy.
