Ok....someone enlighten me on how to get that darn bubble to land on IT. I use a plumbers tubing to blow the bubble and it works great to blow the bubble, but the second it hits IT...then the thing goes pop.



bubbles make me want to cry

Add a little more glycerin to your bubble formula.

Where do I pick it up at?

and do I add it to the bobble or just the small bowl I am using?

You can find Glycerin at most drug stores. It's sold as a hand hand softener, I think.

First off that should say bottle not bobble.


OK cool...and I am guessing club soda to get the bubble stains out of the silk since it cant be washed due to the workings of it

Maybe you should e-mail losander himself.
That would be your best bet in my opinion.

Also if the conditions are not right and the bubble will not last to long, has anyone just done phase 2.

if so how are the reactions to the effect.

I spoke to losander and he says the stains are hard to see from stage and he does not worry about it. The ****** can be removed but its swen into place so I will try some club soda.

Thanks for all the info

I was having hit amd miss results with the bubble popping but have now found by trial and error if you soak the thread before the performance the bubble lands ok nearly everytime.

It makes sense as because to break the bubble the thread must pop it so the fluid on the thread takes away the harshness in the thread on landing, it also helps the bubble stick and be more controlable.

AHA!
That's probably the answer, for sure.
I asked in a forum for bubble workers and someone suggested wetting the thread also.
Man, though, soaking invisible thread and trying to work with it, (sigh).
Suffering for the art...

I don't wet the thread. It's about blowing the right kind of bubble. Try varying the angle of the tube whilst blowing it.
