Two colors ordered

With all the crap that is going on in the world, prices seem to be going up...ripstop nylon included. I ended up only ordering two colors instead of four. The colors are dark pink and light green. Here is the new pattern....
I like the pattern but I have to admit I am a bit frustrated at the moment. Part of me wanted to buy the four colors anyways and fork out the extra money, but the other part of me could see the hole in my wallet getting too big. I'll just try to remind myself that in the end, Ill have a great balloon that I built by myself.


  1. Could you share the plans for this experimental ballon ?

  2. Sorry, I wont be posting any of that information. If you are interested in learning about some of the physics involved in shaping an envelope I encourage you to visit or download the Balloon Builders Journal at

    The first link will give you a good overview of the how building works and the Journal will provide you with many of the details necessary to construct your own.

  3. I read almoust all informations from the web , also the BBJ, but some issues is not quite clear for me. If i have some questions about can you response in private ? My e-mail adress is . Thx .
