Iron Powder Candle Fireworks









My mom learned this trick from her brother when they were little. She still had the same bottle of iron powder her brother gave her way back then and we used a little bit of it over a candle last night for a lovely miniature fireworks show.

    1. Thank you, glad I could show you something new and sparkly! I must admit, I'm not sure where you can get iron powder these days. When I Googled it, it didn't seem as easy as it was back then, but I wouldn't think it's impossible.

  2. So you just sprinkle a little bit over the candle when it's lit or before then?

    1. You sprinkle the powder on while it's lit, but not too much or you'll smother it!

Silkworm and I love hearing what other people think. In fact, it's probably our favorite thing, so don't be shy to leave us a note or ask a question!
