Search the internet for "pyrotechnic compositions colors".
Searching for compositions for gerbs also gives information.

Basically, using KClO4 as the main oxidizer and combining it with Ba-salts, Sr-salts, and a fuel (e.g sulfur, possibly combined with some organics), gives greens and reds. With copper you also can get greens, or even bluish colors. I myself also did experiments with Cs-salts for making nice blue colors, but the latter are quite expensive.

I could sell you some cesium chloride for cheap, I've been sitting on it for a decade now.
