Re: [Pyrotechnics Information ] a smoke of many colors
- ok... Carbon will not make red, think about it, what
color does BP (Black Powder) burn? yellow. But just
because black powder burns yellow doesn't mean the
smoke will be yellow (nor will it be red). You will

complicated. Alot of the chems are hard to find. I'll
try and get a list of Compositions to you guys
