Absolutely amazing! :D (Big Grin) How did you do it? I love working with liquids and the shapes that they make but it is never even close to this calabre.

This is perfect :)
I was wondering about these double splash shots inside a bubble.
Do you blow a bubble first and then allow for the drops to fall?
How many drops would you say does it take to burst the bubble? :D
I feel like trying this out :)

If you put the smallest amount of bubble liquid into the droplet water the main bubble seems to survive for a couple of attempts. Just blow a bubble and then position it under the droplet nozzle.

Normally I would have one attempt and then pop the bubble and clear the water surface of any smaller bubbles and then try again

that's a lot of work! I tried with regular dish washer liquid detergent, the bubbles where too weak and I didn't actually blow them on the surface but just let them fall. They popped on contact with the surface :)
Thanks for the tips!
