Summertime and the livin' is easy. A good time for some magic. But how to become a soap bubble magician? I made a step by step guide with tips, a video and photo's.
The last four years I did a lot of performances with giant soap bubbles in my home town and on festivals. I do this because; I am fascinated by bubbles, I want to share the bubble experience with others, I do it for the fun and for free. Showing giant soap bubbles belongs to the best time of my life. Now I want to share my experiences with you creatives from all over the world.
This instructable is a practical guide on how to make a soap bubble show. On internet there is a lot said about soap bubbles but their is not much information on how to prepare a show with giant bubbles in public. Involving children in the bubble fun require's special attention. Weather conditions are important and also the right scene. If you like you can dress up in exotic outfit.
