If you attend the Robbie Furman, Deco-Twisting balloon jam, (Sponsored by Qualatex Balloons) this past week you would have learned how to make an eight foot high balloon person. The design was cute and has a lot of potential.
Robbie gave ideas on different ways to transform a quick and simple balloon figure into different characters. The balloon figure uses a 3-foot round, 646, 350’s, 260 and 16″ Geo blossoms and the over all assembly was easy for decorators and entertainers to master, just by using basic balloon twists. He even gave advice on how to transport such a large balloon centerpiece to an event.
Robbie had an award winning personality that made the class fun to participate in and having a bunch of entertainers in the room made for an interesting night.
As a balloon entertainer I had more fun the next day downsizing the sculpture to kid level. My boy’s had fun running around the house with “the girl” as they like to call the balloon figure.
As you can see downsizing the design still made it some 30-inches tall or the size of a 2-year old.
I think their slowly becoming best friends.
