Here are a few chemicals you can use to soak pinecones, wood chips,
newspaper, etc. Wood should be soaked for 1 or 2 days submerged in
solution in a burlap bag.
Blue - Copper Sulfate
Yellow - Table Salt
Red - Strontium
Purple - Lithium Chloride
Vivid Green - Borax
Apple Green - Barium Nitrate
Orange - Calcium Chloride
Lavender - Potassium Chloride
Emerald Green - Copper Nitrate
USE RUBBER GLOVES, APRON & FACE PROTECTION<
mix at a ratio of 1/2 lb to 1/2 gal of water.
Or, check out the hardware dept at Wal-Mart in the wood stove section,
they have burn sticks to produce multi-color flames.
Hope this helps.
