Materials: balloons, an air pump, a permanent marker.
Inflate a balloon leaving about five inch flat tail (Pic 1).

Twist the first soft about two inch bubble (Pic 2).

Lock both ends of the first bubble in one lock twist. We have made the nose (Pic 3).

Twist the second about seven inch bubble (Pic 4).

Lock both ends of the second bubble in one lock twist (Pic 5).

Bend balloon around the second bubble (Pic 6).

Twist the third soft about four inch bubble (Pic 7).

Hold the balloon close to the second bubble. Measure and twist the fourth soft about four inch bubble (Pic 8 through 10).



Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the 3rd and the 4th) bubbles in one lock twist. Make sure the third and the fourth bubbles are of the same size. Readjust size of bubbles if necessary (Pic 11). We have made jaws of our bulldog.

Twist the 5th about two inch bubble. Twist the 6th soft about one inch bubble. Twist the 7th about one inch bubble. Twist the 8th soft about one inch bubble. Twist the 9th about two inch bubble (Pic 12).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last five (the 5th through the 9th) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 13).

Lock both ends of the 6th bubble in one lock twist. Lock both ends of the 8th bubble in one lock twist. We have made two ears (Pic 14).

Twist the tenth very soft about one inch bubble (Pic 15).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the 9th and the 10th) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 16).

Bring the rest of the balloon on the back side of the sculpture. Stretch it to the other ear (the 6th bubble). Make about one inch flat space and lock the rest of the balloon with the 6th bubble. Twist the eleventh very soft about one inch bubble (Pic 17). The 11th bubble should be the same size as the 10th bubble.

Lock both ends of the chain of the last two (the 10th and the 11th bubble) in one lock twist. Bring the rest of the balloon on the back side of the sculpture (Pic 18 through 21).




Use a permanent black marker to draw the face of the dog. Congratulations, we have made the head of bulldog (Pic 22 and 23). Also, instead of drawing eyes , we can use different color balloons to make them. And for fangs we can use a little piece of flat balloon (filled with air). Attach it between bubbles of the jaws. We can use the rest of the balloon as a handle or to attach this head to any hat.


In this example I want to use the rest of the first balloon as back of the body. Inflate the same color second balloon leaving about two inch flat tail to make the body (Pic 24).

There are many different bodies we can make. Let's make a body of sitting dog. Twist the first about four inch bubble (Pic 25).

Lock both ends of the first bubble in one lock twist (Pic 26).

Twits the second about seven inch bubble (Pic 27). We have made one front leg.

Twist the twelfth about two inch bubble of the first balloon to make the neck. Lock the free end of the 2nd bubble of the second balloon with the free end of the 12th bubble of the first balloon (Pic 28).

Twist the third about seven inch bubble. Twist the fourth soft about four inch bubble. Lock both ends of the fourth bubble in one lock twist. We have made the other front leg (Pic 29).

Twist the fifth about seven inch bubble to make the rear leg. Twist the fourteenth about one inch bubble at the end of the first balloon to make the tail. The thirteenth bubble of the first balloon represents the back of the body (Pic 30).

Lock the free end of the fifth bubble (the rear leg) between the thirteenth and the fourteenth bubbles of the first balloon (Pic 31).

Twist the 6th about seven inch bubble of the 2nd balloon to make the other rear leg (Pic 32).

Lock both ends of the chain of the sixth (the first through the sixth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 33 and 34).


The rest of the second balloon is the seventh bubble. Lock the very end of the second balloon with the fourth bubble to connect the front legs. Congratulations, we have made the bulldog (Pic 35 through 40). Have fun and happy  twisting :)
