Inflating Orb Balloons with Air
Our Metallic Orb Balloons are one of my personal favorites and I use them at pretty much every party that I throw! These Orbs are only meant to be used with helium as most people when they try to inflate them any other way you tend to get a 'square' rather than round shaped balloon.
However it is possible to do if you don't need your balloon to float, air filled orbs look incredible in balloon garlands and are also great hung from the ceiling.
All you need is:
- Orb (Orbz) Balloon
- A hand held balloon pump
Use A hand Held Balloon Pump and gently insert into the balloon neck.
Start to inflate and as you pump the balloon will unfurl and change shape - it will look nothing like and orb yet!
Keep inflating and the balloon will become squarish with wrinkled seams.
Keep inflating to iron out all of the seams, the aim is to have completely flat seams and only then will your balloon be round.
As soon as your seams are flat stop inflating and remove pump, the balloon will self seal.
