Default Re: Tear drop or light bulb - correct shape for Fully inflated?
Hi,

As I see it a balloon is fully inflated only the moment before it pops, so I would say it has light bulb shape.
Mostly I blow them until they pop, but for decorations it is cool to tie them just before they cannot take anymore. This makes up for some loud spontaneous pops during the event, - and maybe for some balloon blowing as well to ‘repair’ the decoration.

I am quite good at pinpointing just the right size to more or less ensure spontaneous popping, even though some balloons inevitably will pop during the process, - either from being blown just a tiny bit too much or from popping by themselves too quickly after being tied - or during being tied for that matter. Both just add to the fun

As for Q11” I think they can get quite some neck. I still have some, so I will try to make a pic one of these days.

Thanks for reading my posting.

Sincerely
Susie

For public decorations teardrop shape is better, but for myself of course bulb shape, everywhere swelling up tightly. The only problem is that it's almost impossible to tie such a balloon.

Hi,

As I promised in my earlier posting in this thread here is a pic of a Q11 balloon showing how the neck looks when fully blown up. I would say it has light bulb shape. Actually the balloon is blown up a little more than for 'just' filling the neck - I couldn't help also making it nicely big and tight. If you want to be safe I suggest you stop as soon as the neck is full (mine popped when I tried to remove the clip to blow it up more).

Pic is below (I hope....)

Sincerely

Susie

Would you call this fully inflated? (Tuftex 14)
