Coral3's beginner balloon twisting

Post by Coral3 on Thu Jan 09, 2014 5:02 pm

So here are a couple 'first attempts' at things.  I should start taking more pics of what I make, but I usually don't think to until the creation is starting to lose shine, and then the chance has been missed.  Mostly I'm just learning by watching youtube tutorials at the moment, but am looking forward to being able to 'wing it' and create things off the top of my head.  I did make a road runner bird by winging it the other day & he turned out pretty cute, but mostly my 'winging it' fails more often than it works at the moment! LOL  Long way to go, I'm BRAND new at this twisting thing, but finding it heaps of fun.   Very Happy

Thanks guys, I'm trying hard...not sure it's something I'll ever get good enough to do anything with, but am finding it a lot of fun.

Here's the rabbit I twisted yesterday (courtesy of youtube tute from Mr Boma's Balloons). Couple problems with it, I know, next one will be better (we hope! LOL)

My first balloon bouquet



PS - Barb you'll be pleased to know that I have been practicing lots of one and two balloon designs in the last week or so, it's just that I tend not to take photos of them.  Very Happy

So cute! It looks like I'm going to add balloons to my repertoire out of necessity, but, really? Poor me! That looks like a blast and I had no idea how creative and beautiful they could be! What an awesome business we're in. I wish I'd known about "party art" much sooner!

Hi LaLaLaura Smile 

I'd forgotton all about this thread until I received notification that someone had commented.  Seems like I'm never on FPF these days...to be honest, I've lost my confidence with FPing a bit.  I've found I much prefer balloon twisting, but am still practicing at that trying to get better / faster before even considering doing parties etc.

Havn't been taking photos much, but I did snap this one made at Easter because I was pretty happy with it:  



Have fun balloon twisting LaLaLaura...I'm sure you'll love it.  And one of the added benefits? - it gets you out of the kid's 'sneeze-range' & that's got to be a good thing!!   Wink

^ fabulous dress Barb! Love it. My twisting has not progressed lately, to be honest I've gotten a little turned off it all by greedy kids always demanding more, more, more and not saying 'thank you'. Kind of spoils the enjoyment factor for me. So I've not had the balloons out much lately. I definitely should get them out again and have a play just for fun though.
