How to blow a big bubble?

How to blow a big bubble?

I think that here the article will be divided into two parts. The first option is when you do not have special props and want to inflate a large bubble using, for example, a jar of children's bubbles.

And the second option is to inflate a big bubble as a show; how to make a big soap bubble at your show. These are two completely different topics.
If we have a children's jar of bubbles, and we want to inflate a big bubble using it, then everything is really simple. It all depends on your breathing and the detergent in the jar. Even using an ordinary jar of bubble detergent, you can make a bubble with a diameter of 15-20 centimeters. It is quite possible, although many people do not know about it.

The most common mistake of both adults and children who make soap bubbles from a bottle is that they try to stir the contents with a stick. Do not do this – just dip it very gently and pull it out. No one realizes that froth is the enemy of bubbles (The Bubbles' Enemies. Draughts, Air Conditioners and Lows).
Take a stick, dip into the liquid. No need to stir it creating a huge amount of froth. Then, begin to blow gently and very carefully. The main thing is to prevent the bubble from touching the cap that you hold onto. There is actually a matter of practice.

You need to blow in the middle of the circle. And a little bit upwards to keep the bubble with air flow and prevent it from collapsing or falling. When a large bubble is inflated, it can be detached. It's done with a sharp side movement slightly turning the wand.

You can blow a few more bubbles into such a big bubble, but some practice is needed here.
How to make blow-ins into a big soap bubble?
In order to do something with the resulting bubble, it needs to be fixed on the wand. Attach this bubble to the same stick, it will stick there if you use the ring.

Then you can try, just as the bubble artists do, blowing into it. Not all artists, honestly, are able to do blow-ins using children's bubble jar . Therefore, this issue is so interesting.

You can also try to do some blow-ins on the fly. This is more difficult, as it is difficult to calculate the right distance from your mouth to the bubble.
How to make large bubbles with a rope?
Using the same detergent that we bought at the store, we can make bubbles with a regular rope. To do this, take a string with a thickness of 3 to 8 millimeters. A thick rope is too big to fit the detergent jar. Measure out a 30-cm rope end. Tie it to make a loop. Dip your rope in the jar and take it out.

Unfold it to make a soap film. Then start moving your hands away and scoop the air upwards like it's a net. As a result, bubbles of fairly decent size will fly out, twenty to thirty centimeters in diameter, no problem. It all depends on the speed of your hands movement and the elasticity of the detergent in the jar. If you blow big bubbles out of the jar, one piece will not last for a long time, you will need to stock up.

The best children's bubbles are made by the brand Vesyolaya Zateya (Fun Idea). Buy them, use them. Italian-made, bubbles are great, wonderful.

For the same purpose, very good bubble kits are made in Germany by Pustefix, even better are those manufactured by Gazillion, Canada; they are sold, as a rule, in the Detsky Mir chain and in the Metro cash-and-carry. There you can come and buy one liter at once. By the way, you can do anything with Gazillion, the blue one. But it has such a big drawback – it is very bitter. Therefore, try to keep it from getting on lips and eyes of your children, it is very pungent.

For bubble shows, it is quite expensive, but for bubble making at home, it is even more economical. A liter of the Gazillion is now worth, in my opinion, about 350 rubles. There is not a liter inside only 870 ml, but this is a good price, because if you buy jars of Vesyolaya Zateya, it will be about the same. It is obvious that this deteregnt is not suitable for shows, it is very expensive.

Moreover, the Gazillion bubbles are suitable for the show with only medium-size bubbles and for tricks. It's not good for making giant trains and large wands. A 30-cm wand (Props, 30-cm Wand) is the limit. And after that nothing will work.

This is it for the children's bubbles.
How to make a big bubble at the show?
Let's assume that a big bubble is an average bubble with a diameter of about a meter or a bubble big enough to accommodate a person (Props, Human Inside Bubble Set). Or you want to make a bubble train of about five meters long. What do you need for this?

For this you'll need a detergent (Detergent recipe) and some suitable props for the show of bubbles. The detergent should be efficient and elastic. Water-Fairy-glycerin mix won't work. You'll have to experiment for many months and years. You can purchase a detergent formula from some of the artists who are already using it successfully.
However, we got carried away a little. The detergent subject has been covered, I hope. Next question – what props will make a big bubble?
These are two options: either we have a ring with a diameter of, say, 40-60 centimeters, and maybe even 90, if we are going to make a big bubble from the bottom tray. The ring can be made of plastic or metal with a winding. There is already something there.
You can also make bubbles of this size using outdoor props: two sticks and a rope. The proportions of an isosceles triangle (Props, Triangle Outdoor Prop )should be adhered to.

On the street, you will stand with your back to the wind and move the sticks to the sides, and the wind will blow large bubbles. If you are indoors, there is no wind. If you move backwards, you will get some air inside this triangle, and you will get a big bubble.
That's basically all about making a big bubble.
