One balloon dog


Dailymotion:


Supplies: a balloon, an air pump and permanent black marker.

Inflate one balloon leaving about 17 - 18 cm flat tail (Pic 1).

Twist the first about 5 - 6 cm bubble. Twist the second about 3 cm bubble. Twist the third about 2 cm bubble. Twist the fourth about 3 cm bubble (Pic 2).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last three (the second through the fourth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 3 and 4). We have made the head of the dog.


Twist the fifth about 2 - 3 cm bubble. It is the neck. The next four bubbles we twist to make the front legs. Twist the sixth about 5 - 6 cm bubble. Twist the seventh about 2 cm bubble. Twist the eighth about 2 cm bubble. Twist the ninth about 5 - 6 cm bubble (Pic 5).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the sixth through the ninth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 6 and 7). We have made the front legs.


Twist the tenth about 5 - 6 cm bubble. It is the body. The next four bubbles we twist to make the rear legs. Twist the eleventh about 5 - 6 cm bubble. Twist the twelfth about 2 cm bubble. Twist the thirteenth about 2 cm bubble. Twist the fourteenth about 5 - 6 cm bubble (Pic 8).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the eleventh through the fourteenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 9). The rest of the balloon is the tail of the dog.

We can make the funny tail. Split the rest of the balloon on two bubbles of about the same size. Force the last bubble to the very end of the balloon. We have made the funny tail. Use a permanent black marker to draw the face of the dog (Pic 10 through 13). Congratulations, we have made the dog!


You can change size of all bubbles and use different color balloons to make different dogs. The sculpture looks good as it is. Though, you can attach it to balloon hats, use simple balloon sword as a leash and so on. Have fun and happy twisting :)
