Balloon fish

CC0
Materials: two balloons; an air pump; scissors and a permanent marker.


Inflate a balloon leaving a four—inch flat tail (Pic 1).

The first two bubbles you twist to make the mouth. Twist the first soft one—inch bubble (Pic 2).

Lock both ends of the first bubble in one lock twist (Pic 3). This step is marked with arrows between points A and B on the scheme.

Twist the second soft one—inch bubble (Pic 4).

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 5). This step is marked with arrows between points B and C on the scheme.

Twist the third two—inch bubble (Pic 6).

Twist the fourth soft five—inch bubble (Pic 7).

Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 8). This step is marked with arrows between points D and E on the scheme.

Twist the fifth four—inch bubble (Pic 9). 

wist the sixth soft six—inch bubble (Pic 10).

Lock both ends of the sixth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 11). This step is marked with arrows between points F and G on the scheme.

Twist the 7th four—inch bubble (Pic 12).

Twist the eighth soft five—inch bubble (Pic 13).

Lock both ends of the eighth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 14). This step is marked with arrows between points H and I on the scheme.

Twist the ninth two—inch bubble (Pic 15).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last seven (the third through the ninth) bubbles in one lock (Pic 16). This step is marked with arrows between points J and C on the scheme.

Twist the tenth four—inch bubble (Pic 17).

Twist the eleventh five—inch bubble (Pic 18).

Lock the free end (point L on the scheme) of the eleventh bubble around ends of the sixth bubble (Pic 19 through 23). This step is marked with arrows between points L and G on the scheme. The rest of the balloon is the twelfth bubble. You have made the body of the fish.





The next two bubbles you twist to make eyes. Inflate a white balloon. Twist and tie off two soft one—inch bubbles (Pic 24).

Lock both ends of each bubble in one lock twist (Pic 25 and 26). You have made the eye bubbles. Now you have to attach the eye bubbles to the fish.


Lock the eye bubbles between the tenth and the eleventh bubble (Pic 28 through 31). This point is marked with a letter K on the scheme. Use the permanent marker to draw the eyes. Fix all bubbles in proper positions.




Congratulations, you have made the fish. You can also make the fish look more like the clown fish. Simply twist and lock white bubbles between fins and the eyes (Pic 32 and 33). Have fun and happy twisting :)
