One balloon pig


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


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

You have to twist the first bubble in the tulip twist. Hold the balloon in your right hand and put the index finger of your left hand at the nozzle of the balloon (Pic 2).

Push the nozzle inside of the balloon (Pic 3).

Hold the balloon in your left hand. The index finger is one inch inside of the balloon (Pic 4).

Grab the nozzle (the nozzle is inside of the balloon) with your right hand fingers (Pic 5).

Turn your left hand inward and your right hand outward twisting the bubble. Pull your left index finger slightly out of the bubble. It brings the knot you have just made inside of the bubble. The air pressure inside of the bubble keeps the knot. Hold the bubble (not the balloon) in your right hand and pull your left index finger out of the bubble. Wind the bubble a couple more turns to secure the tulip twist (Pic 6).

You have made the tulip twist (Pic 7 and 8). This step is marked with arrow between points A and B on the scheme.


Twist the second one—inch bubble (Pic 9).

Twist the third one—inch bubble (Pic 10).

Twist the fourth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 11).

You will twist this bubble in the ear twist. Twist the fifth two—inch bubble (Pic 12).

Twist the sixth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 13). You will twist this bubble in the ear twist. 

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

Lock both ends of the chain of the last five (the third through the seventh) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 15). This step is marked with arrows between points C and H on the scheme.

Push the chain of the first and second bubbles through the loop (Pic 16 and 17).


Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 18 and 19). This step is marked with arrows between points D and E on the scheme.


Lock both ends of the sixth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 20 and 21). This step is marked with arrows between points F and G on the scheme.


You have made the head (Pic 22 and 23).


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

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

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the eighth and the ninth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 26). This step is marked with arrows between points H and I on the scheme. You have made the front legs.

The next three bubbles you twist in the bird body twist to make the body. Twist the tenth three—inch bubble (Pic 27).

Twist the eleventh three—inch bubble (Pic 28).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the tenth and the eleventh) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 29). This step is marked with arrows between points K and I on the scheme.

Twist the twelfth three—inch bubble (Pic 30).

Lock the free end of the twelfth bubble between the tenth and the eleventh bubbles. Roll the tenth and the eleventh bubbles around the twelfth bubble (Pic 31). This step is marked with arrows between points J and L on the scheme. You have made the body.

The next two bubbles you twist to make the rear legs. Twist the 13th two—inches bubble (Pic 32).

Twist the fourteenth two—inches bubble (Pic 33).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the thirteenth and the fourteenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 34). This step is marked with arrows between points L and M on the scheme. You have made the rear legs.

If there is any flat tail left then you may twist the fifteenth soft one—inch bubble (Pic 35).

Lock both ends of the fifteenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 36 and 37). This step is marked with arrows between points M and N on the scheme. The rest part of the balloon is the sixteenth bubble. It’s the tail. The fifteenth bubble keeps the tail in the fixed position.


You may deflate the sixteenth bubble by cutting a hole in the top of the tail. It will look more alike the piggy tail (Pic 38 and 39).


Use the permanent marker to draw the face (Pic 40 and 41). Congratulations, you have made the pig. You may force a coin between the pig legs to make the pig able to stand on any flat surface. Have fun and happy twisting :)
