How To: Granulate black powder

Granulate black powder

Alexpyro teaches you how to granulate black powder to create Lift Powder in a few easy steps. First, you need to pour a good quality meal powder into a bowl. At this point you can mix in 5% Dextrin if you would like. Next, you should mix at least 70% isopropyl alcohol into the powder. Do this until the mixture is consistent and maintains its shape when squeezed into a ball in your fist. You can also use acetone and denatured alcohol in place of the isopropyl alcohol. To continue, clump the mixture into a ball and grate it through a screen strainer onto a piece of construction paper or newspaper. It sticks to the strainer, you're mixture it too wet. Finally, you should take the lift powder to a safe location and let it dry. Be sure to take the necessary safety precautions when handling these materials because they are flammable.

I can't remember the exact formulas and names of the chemicals used, but I do know that that is some great music.
