starting out in pyro

12 November 2008 - 11:21 AM


I have recently started to look at getting into pyrotechnics more professional. Ive previously worked in special effects and have mucked around with simples pyros, like gerbs , the home made stuff you make as a kid like Grenades, smokes bombs, black powder....

Ive done a couple of fireworks displays and have been on the pyro course with Charlie and Malcolm down at Wedmore, so realise the safety aspect of pyros. But I cant help but want to experiment and make my own pyro. Ive seen some of the instructions and videos on the net about making your own pyros.

Are there any "staple" tools or materials like black powder and other chemicals that would be good to get?

Thanks for any advise you can offer
