One balloon heart


Dailymotion:

Supplies: a balloon, an air pump and scissors.
Inflate a balloon leaving about 13 - 15 cm flat tail (Pic 1).

The first four bubbles we twist of the same about 5 - 6 cm size each. Twist a chain of the first four (the first through the fourth) bubbles.

Lock both ends of the chain of the first four (the first through the fourth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 2).

Twist a chain of the next six (the fifth through the tenth) about 3 cm bubbles (Pic 4).

Lock free end of the tenth bubble between the second and the third bubbles. You have to force the rest of the balloon through the loop of the first four bubbles (Pic 5 and 6).


Twist a chain of the next three (the eleventh through the thirteenth) about 3 cm bubbles. Twist a chain of the next four (the fourteenth through the seventeenth) about 5 cm bubbles. The last four bubbles should be of the same size as the first four bubbles (Pic 7).

Lock both ends of the chain of the last four (the fourteenth through the seventeenth) bubbles in one lock twist (Pic 8).

Force the first, the fourth, the fifth, the sixth and the seventh bubbles through the loop of the chain of the last four (the fourteenth through the seventeenth). Fix all bubbles in proper positions. You have to interlace chains of the first four and the last four bubbles bubbles (Pic 9).

We can hide the rest of the balloon inside of the sculpture. We can use it to make different sculptures. As you may remember, I use the same heart as a base for the mini cake in previously published instruction. Or we can cut off the rest of the balloon and tie off the end. Congratulations, we have made the heart (Pic 10 through 14). It is very popular sculpture for Valentines Day. Also, it is perfect for line work. Have fun and happy twisting :)
