Battle/Challenge: April - You're the Best Around
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: 0
Project Name: Balloon Creations
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: I have been a professional balloon twister for almost ten years now. We have a booth at the local Saturday Market where I draw caricatures too and we have sample books for customers to see exactly what they can get from us. It has been eight years since we have updated our balloon book and things change given enough time. So it is time for a face-lift. This batch of balloons are the ones that I made today and photographed to replace our old images. Pictured are light sabers, princesses, a sponge guy hat and aliens. They are only a drop in the bucket of what I have to remake, but I enjoy it.

Oh, wow, I think balloon art is awesome, but I'm too freaked out by the thought of the balloons popping!  Those are great!

har, har...someone is not afraid of clowns  Grin
Squee. I am one. Professionally. I am Dr Ha Ha. I will leave you in stitches, No bones about it  Grin

Your balloons are really neat.

Yup. I have popped them at the Nursing Homes.
Want to see someone wake up quick?Huh Grin And crawl out of a wheel chair???

I like your aliens...I will have to see about the double balloon thing with the outside head thing {clear} going on.
That looks really cool. I know how it is done, I just have never tried that before. Neat share. Thanks!

Thanks! I am not a clown but was taught by a professional clown, Pockets (Patricia Bunnell).

The alien heads are made with 5" diamond clear and the 5" alien heads. Pre-stuff a pile of them at home, using a skewer, pen, whatever. When you inflate them hold both the nozzles and inflate just the clear first for a couple of pumps then inflate the alien head. This will give them just enough separation to look like a helmet. Knot together, done!

lol, thanks! You learn techniques that help reduce the popping, but it does still happen. It's great when a customer jumps and screams. I must admit that I don't jump anymore. I draw caricatures with a markers and inks and can be in mid-line when my partner will pop a balloon and my line won't waiver a hair. I'm not sure if losing that reflex was bad or not. Wink
