Rudgwick Steam & Country Show 2013 (291)

Buy some sheets of Blotting paper. Go to the Pharmacy and purchase a small quantity of Saltpetre in dry form, a bit like table salt. Get an old pepper pot, the best one to use is the small plastic ones that you can buy pepper in from the supermarket, these have larger holes in them. Half fill the pot with Saltpetre, no lumps. Cut up a sheet of Blotting paper in to 2 1/2" wide strips, then cut each strip every 2" so that you have 2 1/2" x 2" pieces. Lay these out on a flat surface. Wet the papers with water. Spray lightly with a flower pot sprayer or one of those hairdressing water sprayers. Once the papers are wet all over ( do not over wet them) carefully add the Saltpetre as if you are adding pepper to your dinner, quite heavily and cover all of the papers evenly, corners too. Leave the paper to dry completely overnight. You may find it easier to have a trial run with a small piece of Blotting paper first, to get the correct amount of Saltpetre. I prefer to add extra Saltpetre. Having a more lively paper helps with a cold start. It is trial and error to get it right. Don't buy too much Saltpetre, it lasts forever. You may need to produce a Shotgun or Firearms licence to purchase the Saltpetre.
