Balloon pyramid

CC0

Materials: balloon, scissors and an air pump.
Today we are going to make a pyramid. We are going to make this sculpture in a different way from as described in previously published instruction "Dreidel Pyramid Square Base". Also, I want to stress your attention right away that this pyramid can be used as a base for heads of different animals, cartoon characters and etc. Inflate 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 the chain of the next two (the sixth and the seventh) about three-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 and 6).


Twist the eighth about one-inch bubble (Pic 7).

Lock both ends of the chain of the first eight (the first through the eighth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 8 through 10).



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

Lock both ends of the chain of the last seven (the third through the ninth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 12 and 13).


Twist the tenth about three-inch bubble (Pic 14).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the seventh through the tenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 15 and 16).


Twist the eleventh about three-inch bubble (Pic 17).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last seven (the fifth through the eleventh) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 18).

Twist the twelfth about one-inch bubble (Pic 19).

Lock  both ends of the chain of the first twelve (the first through the twelfth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 20 through 23). Congratulations, we have made the pyramid.




We can use it as it is. Or we can cut off the rest of the balloon and tie off the end (Pic 24 through 27). And again, we can use the pyramid as a base to make many different heads of animals and etc. Just use appropriate color balloons, add bubbles to represent ears, eyes, nose, and etc. You may need to change the size of bubbles. Make appropriate body as well and so on. We are going to work with use of this pyramid to make different sculptures in many future instructions.  Have fun and happy twisting :)
