holiday inflatable - giant floating (indoor) balloon Answered
We have a Gemmy inflatable at work (a giant Homer Simpson -- about 8 feet tall) and we were wondering if we could somehow fill it with helium and float it on the ceiling.
We're concerned that it's too permeable (when the fan is not going, it deflates FAST). One idea was to coat the inside with polyurethane (turning the fan on to blow it throughout the balloon) but that seems like it wouldn't work very well (too patchy), and could make it too heavy.
Another option would be to take a bunch of balloons, insert them into the Homer, and then inflate the smaller balloons (and tie them off).
Any other thoughts or suggestions?
