Astro's Sizzler

A Golden Silver Sparkler Star with a Unique Hissing/Sizzling Sound
Works Best When Parlon Bound. Particle Size of the Metals Has a Large Affect on The Performance of The star, Especilally The Size of The Mag/Al. Courser Mag/Al (20 - 60m) Produces a Loud Sizzling Almost Crackling Sound While Finer Grades Produces a Sizzling/Hissing Sound. I have Noticed that Course Mag/Al does tend to Crackle a Little in Fountain and Star Comps and I beleive That Effect is Enhanced by The Chlorine Present From The Parlon.

These Stars Need a Hot Fast Burning Prime to Work Properly as They Seem to Work Best When The Whole Star is Lit. When Testing, Stars Shot From The Star Gun that Did not Light Completely Produced a Noticably Diminished Effect.  
The Prime I usually use With These Stars is Listed Below

Astro's Pulse Star

An Interesting Effect, A little Hard to Explain
I Will Try to Get a Decent Video of it to Post

Can be Primed With a Blackpowder + 5% Mag/Al Prime
They Seem to take Fire reasonably Easily

Ultramarine is a complex sodium silicate containing sulfur and aluminum with the chemical formula Na7Al6Si6O24S3
The Ultramarine Used for these Stars Was in The Form
