Writing on foil balloons!

by Carla
(Wenhaston, Suffolk, England)


Help please! I would like to know how to write on foil balloons! I have bought a glue pen from qualatex and some crafting powder but whenever I write on the balloon, the glue slides and seperates!


How do I write on balloons and make it look good like the professionals do?

Writing on balloon before or after inflating?
by: Margit

Hi there,

It's best to write on the balloon after you inflate it.

I've answered a similar question on this page about writing on foil balloons.

Best,
Margit

Writing on Foil Balloons in Glitter
by: Anonymous

Use a Zig glue pen they come in different sizes. They go on blue and dry clear. I write my message then springle on the craft glitter (I use extra fine polyester glitter). The writing can withstand a lot of knocks and bumps without glitter falling off everywhere.
