Yes married comets are normally a colour and a streamer type composition both the streamer and colour sections are pumped and then they are pasted together using a couple of turns of lightweight pasted kraft paper. Both ends of the comet are bare and are lit from the burst, the coloured wafer would normally be primed. You need to make sure the kraft paper wrap is tight to the sides of the comets otherwise fire can pass inside the paper. The colour wafer and the tail comps should burn for about the same time so you get a streamer effect with a coloured head, very similar to a cavity comet but you dont have so many issue with the compatibility of compositions as you can isolate the colour comp from the streamer comp.
They take longer to make than cavity stars/ comets but should stay together better. They can be quite messy to make, especially if your star comps use a water soluble binder as the paste in the kraft wrap starts to dissolve the sides of the comet. You can paint the sides of the comets with some NC solution to stop this.
