In my lab, I would carefully mix potassium chlorate (carefully powdered), aluminum powder, and a small amount of sugar (also carefully powdered in my large mortar and pestle, kept very clean). Flash powder, from an out of print book called 10,000 Formulas for Home and Farm. It worked much better than the regular gunpowder I made. I had that college equipped lab from 12 to 17, when I found flying and girls more fun. :lol:

Warning do not try this at home
One of my friends at school was nicked named the stump after he blew his right arm off playing with sugar and potassium chlorate.
