Here is a random list of ways to increase your creativity and develop a new balloon figure.
Turn the specialty balloon inside out.
- Deflate the balloon halfway.
- Inflate the balloon and twist it in half.
- Turn the balloon shape 180 degrees.
- Hold the balloon shape up to a mirror, viewing the problem from a different angle.
- Twist a balloon shape and ask a child what they see. Children’s imaginations and creativity are more abstract.
- Experiment with different sizes of balloons.
- Lay the balloon shape down and look at it from an aerial view.
- Change the color combination; simply changing the color of a figure transforms it into another animal or character.
- Overinflate the balloon.
- Try using the balloon shape as a head, body, foot, hand or hat.
- Stimulate the creative part of the brain by adding eyes to the balloon shape.
- Team up with somebody who has more or less experience. Draw on one anther’s experiences or lack of experiences.
- Attach shapes randomly and look at it from all angles.
- Whatever you see, expand on it. If you see a hand in the balloon shape, make a character to complement the hand.
- Take the balloon shape and make it 3-4 different objects or characters. Turn a balloon pumpkin into a drill, doll, ball, etc.
- Attach two of the same balloon shapes together – What does it look like?
- The wilder the balloon design, the more possibilities arise.
- Think as if a child is drawing the balloon design.
- Think abstract – Andy Warhol-style, no constraints.
- Insert one balloon into another and inflate.
- Insert two balloons into a balloon and inflate.
- If the balloon shape you are working with is a triangle, use Google Image to search for things that are a triangle. Use the creativity of those images to produce the characters they have drawn or made.
- Using a marker, transform that new balloon shape into an animal. Do not add balloons; just draw onto the balloon shape.
- Keep the design simple, and let your imagination run wild. Nothing is off limits; it can be cute, disgusting, or impossible, like a penguin blowing a bubble gum bubble.
