Two years ago we shared a DIY bubble wand guide. This amazing video, featuring a super-size version of that DIY bubble wand, prompted us to dig the old post out of the archives.
In the above video Sterling Johnson, an engineer turned bubblesmith, is blowing enormous bubbles at Stinson Beach, CA. He’s using a super-size version of the dowel and string bubble wand found here. Don’t think you need to be a professional bubble performer to pull those kind of bubbles off, however, as the style of bubble wand he is using is very forgiving.
Combine it with the right solution, open and close it gently in the wind — cloudy humid days are a bubble’s best friend — and you’ll be creating gigantic bubbles in no time.
You can check out the original tutorial we shared to get an idea how to build a big—or, as in the video above, super-size—bubble wand as well as a great DIY bubble recipe. For more bubble recipes, including the recipe used by Sterling Johnson, check out bubble-making site SoapBubbleDK.
