Most pyrotechnic effects needs some outside ignition source. This might be from electric igniters, flint flashers or a direct flame. Though these other sources tend to be more for lighting pyrotechnic effects that are out and away from you. When you need a truly vertical display, a flash pot like this one tends to be the better option. It can be palmed or held up your sleeve for times when you need to use sleight of hand to deploy it. It’s also easy to deploy for a tabletop display.
This flash pot might be small in size, but it’s big on power. It’s very easy to keep tucked away off to the side of your tabletop display or hidden somewhere in your costume. You can use it to ignite flash cotton, flash paper, smoke cloth and other pyrotechnic effects. Though the sparkles it creates are also visually striking all on their own.
