On this site you will find a wide variety
of procedures for making pyrotechnics, explosives, rockets, smoke bombs,
incendiary bombs, igniting devices, interesting chemical reactions and much
more. In contrast to many other sites it contains only procedures that can
be carried out at home. It doesn’t use complicated lab skills or equipment
as for instance distillation. This lab also uses cheap chemicals available
in common shops and drugstores. In the case one procedure is difficult to
carry out but uses simple chemicals it has precedence over the more simple
procedure that uses exotic chemicals. The same is with reactions yields.
It is better to use cheap and available chemicals, although the yield is
lower. Often more than one procedure is given. The site author also tested
all the procedures described on this site. The author takes no responsibilities
for eventual damage to persons or property.
The site Pyrotechnical Heavens is the biggest site
in Slovenian language about pyrotechnics and explosives.
Although the site is in Slovenian language you can still
send me an e-mail in English language. You can ask me about anything.

Descriptions of chemicals used by this lab. Here
you can find the specific products names that contain the necessary chemicals
and the specific names of stores where you can find them. If the chemical
is not available in common shops the procedure for its synthesis is given.
Interesting chemical reactions:
Synthesis of Stinking Substances, Ignition with
water, Machine for artificial fog, Laughing gas
