****I want a stuffed animal in a balloon not in the balloon *****
One of my special creations is a stuffed animal I put inside of a balloon.  A child found the stuffed animal she really wanted, so she told me "I want the stuffed animal in a balloon, but not in the balloon.  I do not want to have to get it out...."

I have a few one-balloon videos.
They are in Russian, but it is understood without knowing the language.
Perhaps they will be difficult for the beginner.
Oh, and I use the measuring line  Undecided

Hey all....I am a newbie to most twisting.  I work mainly with 260's.  Heres my issue- I am also a Shriner Clown- please don't throw rocks at me, I love what we do and I LOVE the kids.  SO what would be a good list to make?  I can make the dog, 3 swords, 3 different flowers (single and double balloon), and the little bracelets  like green for a turtle and red for a lady bug.  But what are some other easy to learn ones?  I know most of you are professionals and twist a lot, I mainly use the small heart balloons and the 260s.  ANY and all input is appreciated.  Also what is a basic group of balloons youd recommend me getting?  I get all the 260's I can use form the Unit I am in, so that's not an issue, but should I get 160's?  please understand usually when we are "working" it is at a circus or at a State Fair, and we have like 30 to 50 children steadily standing and waiting for us to make them balloons.  I look forward to your responses :-)  Bump a Nose

***** Art Walk, MAY 15, 2015 *****
Inside working for tips (was sponsored by the store).

**** Infomercial Moment *****
I was twisting it up for some kids and cracking some fun jokes and some young adults were staring at me and laughing - I turned to them and in an infomercial style voice told them "Not only if you get in line now you will get a balloon - but you will get jokes at no extra cost!"  I wish I knew exactly what I said - but the way I said it was smooth and they laughed all the harder!  I even convinced one adult to get into my line for a balloon!!! 

****Horse Lips on a Stick! *****
I was starting up twisting a horse and the first thing I do is 2 pinch twists to make the lips - I took the balloon by the tail and held it up to the child's face and proceeded to tell her "Here is your horse lips on a stick - have a great day!"  Not the best joke - but the adult loved it... and I am still scratching my head trying to figure out why I even did that goofy one....  I swear it had something to do with a 5 PM to 9 PM run without dinner .... I once even turned - "Would you believe it - I am running without any dinner and without any caffeine, it's a miracle!"

****I want a horse... not a turtle...*****
A young adult couldn't decide what she wanted and first wanted a horse and then a turtle... I simply responded "Tell you what, lets make a compromise, I will make you half a turtle and half a horse!"  The girl stared at me stupid and the male with her burst out laughing.  She commented back.... "...a turkey?"   She didn't hear it - doh!

**** Random Hug *****
I have only had one child hug me for my balloon creations and our families are friends now days as we used to be vendors at the market together and we bonded ... well, today a child thanked me for a balloon, leaned over and gave me a hug (second experience - I do not know this child right off).  I am generally touch free with children, but I was not about to leave him hanging - so I put my arms around him and simply patted him on the back.  It was refreshing but always a little unnerving as you do not know what the parents are going to think ... so you are looking for them to know if it is okay! 

Well, when leaving not only did my sponsor tell me politely - see you next art walk... but told me the highlight of the night for them was when a child stormed into their store with 2 dollars in their fist exclaiming "WHERE IS THE BALLOON MAN?!?"  She told me it is a delight to see the children excited when they come into their store.

Love it! Nicely done- and only four balloons- wow!

Thank you Smiley
At first I made it black. And asked people what color is better. So it became gray.
I think gold also will be fine. But it need to try...
