One balloon horse


CC0
Materials: a balloon; an air pump and a permanent marker.


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

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

Twist the second soft one—inch bubble (Pic 3).

Lock both ends of the chain of two (the first and the second) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 4). This step is marked with arrows between points A and C on the scheme.

Lock both ends of each bubble in one lock twist. Twist both bubbles in opposite directions (Pic 5). This step is marked with arrows between points B and C on the scheme. You have made the lips.

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

The next two bubbles you twist to make the ears. Twist the 4th two—inch bubble (Pic 7).

Twist the fifth two—inch bubble (Pic 8).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the fourth and the fifth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 9). This step is marked with arrows between the points D and E on the scheme.

The next six bubbles you twist to make the mane. Twist the 6th one—inch bubble (Pic 10).

Twist the seventh one—inch bubble (Pic 11).

Twist the eighth one—inch bubble (Pic 12).

Twist the ninth one—inch bubble (Pic 13).

Twist the tenth one—inch bubble (Pic 14).

Twist the eleventh one—inch bubble (Pic 15).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last six (the sixth through the eleventh) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 16). This step is marked with arrows between points E and G on the scheme.

Twist the twelfth two—inch bubble (Pic 17). It’s the neck.

Lock the free end of the twelfth bubble by forcing it between the eighth and ninth bubbles (Pic 18 and 19). This step is marked with arrows between points F and H on the scheme.


The next two bubbles you twist to make legs. Twist the 13th two—inch bubble (Pic 20).

Twist the fourteenth two—inch bubble (Pic 21).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the thirteenth and the fourteenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 22). This step is marked with arrows between points H and I on the scheme. You have made the front legs.

Twist the fifteenth three—inch bubble (Pic 23). It is the body.

The next two bubbles you twist to make the rear legs. Twist the sixteenth two—inch bubble (Pic 24).

Twist the seventeenth two—inch bubble (Pic 25).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the sixteenth and the seventeenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 26). This step is marked with arrows between points J and K on the scheme. The rest of the balloon is the eighteenth bubble. It’s the tail.

Fix all bubbles in proper positions (Pic 27 through 29). Use the permanent marker to draw the face. Congratulations, you have made the horse 2. You may force a coin between the horse legs. It makes it easier to balance the sculpture on any flat surface. Have fun and happy twisting :)
