well, if u add an oxidising agent, that might work (e.g. potassium chlorATE, sodium chlorATE, Notice the -ATE, this is the oxidising part, do not get this mixed up with cholride, or u r officially retarded, thats coz its salt in bot cases) and addin stuff like aluminium n magnesium might get a bright flame but would b hard to ignite, so use powders
