Side Wall Bubble (13)

(1/3) > >>

Graham Lee:
The side wall bubble is when you put a very small bubble onto the side of a modelling balloon.
It is easier to do with a slightly softer section of balloon and with the balloon folded.
The bubble would be twisted into the side of the balloon where the fold of the balloon is made and acts as an attachment point.

That's easy for you to say; or draw. Sometimes I can do it straight away, and sometimes it takes ages. And sometimes I give up. Any additional tips to make it foolproof?

Just spent about 20 minutes trying to do a sidewall bubble in a 646 for my first mask. Had better luck with my weaker hand (L) but still either cannot close the grip or simply grip nothing  :roll:

Graham Lee:
Try putting a dried pea or a bouncy ball inside so that you have something to grip onto, makes it so much easier.

I was gonna do a raisin twist, once I have stepped away from the balloon for a bit  :o
