The Firework Star is an item that was implemented in update 1.4.6 and determines the effect, color, and shape of a Firework Rocket. Using a dye will enable the Firework Star to portray a different color. Any type of dye can be used to create a Firework Star. If a player uses multiple dyes, they can make the Firework Star fade to a different color. In the PS3 Edition, a player must have some dye in order to try to craft a Firework Star; doing so will cause the crafting interface to turn into the fireworks crafting interface, which is basically the PS3 inventory with a crafting grid above it where items that cannot be used to make a Firework Star or Firework Rocket are grayed out and unselectable. In the PS3 edition, using multiple dyes changes the color of the star, with different orders of dye further changing the color. A fade to a different color is achieved by placing the Firework Star back in the interface and crafting it with more dyes in the PS3 edition.
