Split Blowing

Using scissors to split shapes while blowing.

When blowing Lac it is possible to split the shape while using the same blowing entry.

It is recommended to use the sugar pump in this technique, so you would be able to work close to the material and have a ‘free’ hand.

First start blowing a round shape and then slowly stretch is with your hand while you continue pushing some air.

Then you can you any pair of sharp scissors and ‘cut’ the shape. Instead of cutting the scissors will split your shape and you will be able to keep blowing.

Technique was discovered in a collaboration with Auke Raaff.
