Hi mizmo and all other artists,
maybe thats a way to render fireworks, of course used my favorite tool Inkscape
first draw a star with 25 edges, spoke ratio 0.110, rounded 0.080 and
then I made 2 copies of it and added each 2 more edges and scaled them.
now, u can choose, I made path union of them all but u can do the next steps
of each stat alone there will be a better result.
I used the path effect Bend and brought the middle of the control line a little
Then I filled it wit a radial gradient (each filled wit a little bit different
looks more cool)
Then I made a copy of them and filled it with white and set down the opacity to
Then I used some filter primitives on it, u can find them in
