Thanks, Dan. I have that book around here somewhere, but I can’t put my finger on it at the moment.

Just remember that balloons or balls are not ment to be used alone. They provide no structural strength, you need to add cabosil to them to prvevent running and of the mix and strength to it. The balloons and balls make it easier to sand.
