    I love the soft glow they give off. 🙂

    On the leaf subject, what if you dipped the leaves in the wax, then laid them gently on the globe? You might need another dip after they cool.

    I love these! And, what a great tip to even out the edges on a hot cookie sheet. For the leaves, I wonder if you could dip them into the wax first and then apply them?

    Ooooo! This looks fun and easy while giving an impressive result!

    Cool! looks very interesting and fun to try. I was wondering though, if it would work by simply filling the balloons with air instead of water, or does the water provide the extra pressure to form the globe?

    This way, you could just pop the balloon when done, and who doesn’t love to pop a balloon?

    They are so lovely!! Love the soft glow as well. Thanks for another beautiful video, Kitty!

    Hi there!
    The air heats up too fast and expands the balloon and it will pop. The water acts a coolant/buffer for the balloon. That is one reason you don’t dip the balloon past the water level, it will pop. When you make them, you will feel the balloon expand a bit and the water will heat up just a smidge. ~Pam

    Ohhh! That’s a thought! I even tried to make the leaves super pliable but they just wouldn’t sit flat. I bet dipping them would help. Thanks! ~Pam

    That’s a good idea! I made sure the leaves were pliable when I tried but I bet if I dipped them first, then laid them on then dipped a few more times it might work. Thanks! ~Pam
