Pokemon Pikachu Head Balloon Twisting Instruction

CC0


YouTube:
Materials: balloons, scissors, 
a permanent black marker and an air pump.
We are going to use previously described
 sculpture Pyramid to make a head of Pokemon Pikachu.
 Inflate yellow balloon leaving
 about four-inch flat tail (Pic 1).

Twist the first about one-inch bubble.
Twist a chain of the next four (the second through
 the fifth) about three-inch bubbles (Pic 2).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the second
through the fifth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 3).

Twist a chain of the next two (the sixth
and the seventh) about two-inch bubbles (Pic 4).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the fourth
through the seventh) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 5).

Twist a chain of the next three (the eighth through
 the tenth) soft about one-inch bubbles (Pic 6).

Lock all ends of the last three (the eighth through
 the tenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 7 and 8).
We have made the mouth.


Twist the eleventh about one-inch bubble (Pic 9).

Lock both ends of the chain of the first eleven
 (the first through the eleventh) bubbles
 in one lock twist (Pic 10).

Twist the twelfth about one-inch bubble (Pic 11).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last eight (the fifth
through the twelfth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 12).

Twist the thirteenth about two-inch bubble (Pic 13).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last eight (the seventh
through the thirteenth) bubbles in one lock twist.
Twist the fourteenth about two-inch bubble (Pic 14).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last twelve (the third
 through the fourteenth) bubbles in one lock twist.
Twist the fifteenth about one-inch bubble (Pic 15).

Lock both ends of the chain of the first fifteen (the first through the fifteenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 16 through 18). We have made the pyramid with mouth. We can use the rest of the balloon to represent neck. Or cut it off and tie off the end.



Use black balloon to make nose and eyes.
 Make one soft about one-inch size bubble.
 Lock both ends of this black bubble in one lock twist.
Or you can use end of the black balloon
to make this bubble (Pic 19).

Lock the black nose bubble between
 three yellow mouth bubbles.
 Use the second yellow balloon or scrap
 of yellow balloon to make ear bubbles.
Twist about five-inch size yellow bubble (Pic 20).

Force and lock the end of the ear bubble between 
bubbles of the head on the back side of the head. 
The ear bubble should protrude about two-inch 
above the top of the pyramid (Pic 21 and 22).


Work the second ear bubble
 in the same fashion (Pic 23 and 24).


Use the permanent black marker
to paint ends of the ear bubbles (Pic 25 and 26).


Twist two black about one-inch eye bubbles. Lock both ends of each eye bubble in one lock twist. The eye bubbles should be larger than nose bubble (Pic 27). Also, we can use just one black about three-inch bubble to represent both eyes.

Fix the eye bubbles on the front side between
 bubbles of the head (Pic 28 through 33). 
Congratulations, we have made the head of Pikachu.






We can use the head as it is. Or we can attach it to
 some of the previously described bodies.
I would rather make some large size body
 appropriate for this size head.
 Also, we can attach the head
 to a simple hat (Pic 34 through 38).





I want to remind you that we use pyramid as a base to make this sculpture (Pic 39 and 40). And we can use the pyramid to make many other animals, cartoon characters or just to represent objects as: umbrella, mushroom, dreidel and etc. Have fun and happy twisting :)
