Large soap bubbles

Post by olegnyc » Fri Aug 08, 2014 9:08 pm

I've been thinking about making some giant soap bubbles on the playa (3'+). Has anyone seen it done or tried to do it? I'm wondering if the dry air or dust just makes that impossible. Thanks!

Cheers,
Oleg

Haven't tried it on the Playa (or at all, yet), but here's a recipe for the best HUGE bubbles:

6 parts water
1 part corn syrup
2 parts Joy dish soap (regular strength)

supposedly, they're almost un-poppable! :shock:

Thank you! You just saved me a lot of trouble just to see all my bubbles pop before taking flight.
And thanks for the recipe!

From what I've heard the dust in the air makes bubbles not work at all. And some people would consider it moopy (thread on it from a few months back is kicking around here somewhere if you look.)
