Double Stuffing to make Pastel Colored Latex Balloons

Modified on Mon, 03 Jul 2023 at 05:16 PM

Standard Stuffing


Unique shades of colors can be created by putting two different shades of balloons inside each other– this is called double stuffing.


Standard colors combined with other colors can be used to create pastel colors or other unique toned colors (ex. purple, yellow, pink, green stuffed into white) and 11-inch colored balloons can be stuffed into 16-inch white balloons. This can be done by using a stick or the extension pole from a Slide-N-Size balloon sizer (if applicable).


Balloons can be pre-stuffed prior to inflation and inflated to their full size or underinflated if a round shape is desired. The white balloon should also remain un-stretched on the outside. This is done by tying the 11-inch balloon after inflation while leaving the 16-inch balloon untied. 


Unique Stuffing


Balloons can also be stuffed into different colored balloons for unique color creations. Some color combinations include stuffing standard colors into an ivory silk balloon to create warm pastel colors. Pastel lilac can be created by stuffing pale blue inside a pink balloon. If you put a grey balloon inside a pale blue balloon– before stuffing it into pink– this will add more depth.


We suggest experimenting with stuffing different color combinations to see what fun creations you come up with!


*Using quality latex is recommended for the best color results. Qualatex is a great brand for creating pastel colors.
