View Full Version : Priming Sparklers

Hi All

I am having a bit of a problem priming sparklers for a set piece. I am using a method that has previously been successful, but the priming is not passing fire to the sparkler compound. The only difference is the brand of sparkler, which appears to be harder to light.

Has anyone here got any tried & true methods I can test.

Thanks for the 1 on 1 help Marty.

Great community!

Rather than start another new thread, I'd be interested in how to prime sparklers too. I'd like to use some for "lance work" in an upcoming show. Thanks in advance.

Edit: I just noticed that this posted in the proximate section. My show is outdoors.
