Making people and specially kids happy is how he earns a living. Because of the Spanish crisis he was unemployed and saw this as an opportunity to do something better that would make him and more people happy.
How did he learn to do giant soap bubbles?
He was taught by a friend and has improved his technique over time. He makes all kinds of bubbles small, big, extra-large depending on the weather conditions. He tells us that the most important factors to make the best soap bubbles are mainly the wind and the type of mix.
“More wind equals smaller bubbles.” Says Christian while he shows us the different kind of wands he created with bandages and bamboo sticks. The equipment shouldn’t be heavy if you are going to do this for the whole day.
