All about the SA24 and the GL series. But Im wanting to experiment more with Tilly workers, all of these have made for quite the artwork.

How Often do your tastes change? Right now I have been into Mexican airships, but like Mexican 20 inch and Cattex 20 inch and G L 500 also. I shifted from to Mexico and will probably change back in the future.

I think others do this too, but at least in my art, I use a mix of big and small because there is a unanticipated contract between big and small contour and motif. We will often use small balloons on our popping shoots and big balloons as furniture in the office. There's a use for every size. Personally I have never liked anything smaller than 16" or bigger than a 36" round or a gl1200.

Figurines are our current interest. That, I would say is dependant upon the day however.

I have to say that I am a fan of Unique 16"s because they get stretched out so easily and you can blow them up a lot bigger than 16", the colours are also really consistent.

SA24's are excellent furniture pieces because they are so stretchy, but can get up to 40"s
GL700 and 1200s are also great to have. Expensive but good. I have three in my office as chair in my waiting area, and use a 48" qua latex as an office chair. cool huh?

Another cool make is a Suzuki Peacock 18", the colours are just unmatched

Tilly workers are great for putting lights in, but its dangerous.

But Unique 29"s have to be the favourite because they are more accessible than SA24s, are VERY soft and stretchy but durable, have very few holes, and can pop cleanly (good for stuffing).

All of these are fun to pop. Very fun to pop, actually. I have to say popping any of these is enjoyable because you can actually, generally, predict the blast patterns, and it gets very, very loud.

Has anyone noticed that it's suddenly become extremely difficult to get SA24s?
