Balloon saxophone


Internet Archive:

Material: a balloon and an air pump.
Inflate a balloon leaving about five-inch flat tail (Pic 1).

Twist a chain of the first soft two one-inch bubbles (Pic 2).

Lock both ends of the chain of the first two bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 3).

Lock all ends of the first two bubbles in one lock twist. Twist the third soft about five-inch bubble  (Pic 4).

Twist the chain of the next two (the fourth and the fifth) soft one-inch bubbles (Pic 5).

Lock all ends of the last two (the fourth and the fifth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 6).

Twist the sixth about two-inch bubble (Pic 7).

Twist a chain of the next two (the seventh and the eighth) soft one-inch bubbles (Pic 8).

Lock all ends of the last two (the seventh and the eighth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 9).

Twist the ninth about four-inch bubble (Pic 10).

Twist the tenth soft one-inch bubble (Pic 11).

Lock both ends of the tenth bubble in one lock twist (Pic 12). Note: the balloon has about one-inch flat tail at this point.

Squeeze the rest of the balloon to make it soft. Make sure to get rid off the flat tail at the end of the balloon. Twist the eleventh soft about nine-inch bubble (Pic 13).

Lock both ends of the eleventh bubble in one lock twist (Pic 14).

Twist the thirteenth about two-inch bubble at the end of the balloon. At the same time we twist the twelfth soft about ten-inch bubble (Pic 15).

Lock both ends of the twelfth bubble in one lock twist. Fix the thirteenth bubble inside of the loop of the twelfth bubble (Pic 16).

Force one end of the twelfth bubble inside of the loop of the eleventh bubble (Pic 17 and 18). Bend the third bubble to shape it properly.

Congratulations, we have made the saxophone (Pic 19).

We can use different color balloons to make the saxophone. I like to use silver or gold colors for this sculpture (Pic 20). Have fun and happy twisting :)
So far you spent on this page.
