That's not very different from the way we made "Tri-Nitro-Toilet_tissue"
(actually, nitrocellulose, or guncotton) when I was an undergrad. We
soaked rolls of toilet tissue in concentrated solutions of nitric and
sulfuric acid, then rinsed the rolls in water. It still looked like
toilet paper, but was actually now "flash paper" that would burn very
rapidly with a great yellow flash and practically no smoke. Don't try
this unless you know how to handle concentrated acids.
