As an alternative to a drop of oil, I discovered that Vaseline will also work. Coat the needle with a thin coating of Vaseline. And a knitting needle works just as well.

This is not surprising because Vaseline is a petroleum oil based product.

where did u get the big needle and wat is a needle that big used for?

I got it a magic store. I'm not sure if needles this big are used for things other than magic.

i once did this at school. it first popped because there was not enough stuff of it.

dont work for me:-(

That was very quick of you to try this out...you had the big needle and latex balloons on hand did ya? ;-) This does require some practice...try just poking one end using a regular but very sharp needle, as described.
