How To Create a DIY Fan Effect (Fireworks)

Pin It now!
Since 2017 is almost here I would like to share the DIY tips on how to create your own Fan Fireworks Effect using consumer grade fireworks cake (tubes). Please refer to the image and steps below.

Please note that fireworks, pyrotechnic, black powder are explosives devices and dangerous. Please be careful. Don't proceed if you lack knowledge with pyrotechnic and black powder. I wont be held liable for your own mistake. 

To start with, here are the necessary tools and materials that you'll need:
1. quick fuse
2. visco fuse
3. single shot tubes (taken from consumer cake)
4. tape
5. cutter and scissors
6. glue or hot glue
7. electric match (remote firing)

So here are the materials and tools:

Arrange the fireworks tube in fan shape (V or W shape according to your desire effect). I used 5 tubes in fan formation below:

Link all the tubes using the visco fuse. Be carfeulll when punching holes on the fast fuse. After adding the fast fuse connect it to visco (green fuse) and electric match. Please protect the bottom/base with plastic tape against moist, dew and mild rain. Please check the complete setup below. 

Enjoy your holiday and have blast. This setup was customized to display this effect (Three Layer Fan Shape Effect with Blue Mine and Crackling Effect to Red Crossets with Timerain Effect). 

Here is the finished product! I will post the video of the show soon... This will be fired using remote firing with electric match in an open field.
Option 1. Small Fan Formation

Option 2. Wide Fan Formation
