If you can get hold of some, try strontium nitrate.
I have tried all sorts of compounds for colouring arcs from an SSTC table
salt is by far the most impressive, but strontium nitrate or better still a
mixture of both table salt and
My experiments are at
This only seams to work sell with HOT coils DRSSTC's and spark gap TC's
don't have the heat in the arc to get the best out of anything applied to
Jacobs ladders are even better..
