October Model of the Month (Digger)

(1/3) > >>

Graham Lee:
I'm going with the Digger for the model of the month for October.
I was challenged about 10 days back to make a Digger from 4 balloons and thought I would
not be able to do it as I do like to add an extra balloon here and there in my designs.
But a 4 balloon Digger for line work I was able to make.
I'm rather pleased about that, and yes I then went on and made a more elaborate Digger
from 6 balloons but we are keeping with the 4 balloon version for this tutorial.

I have filmed the 6 balloon Digger and I'm thinking about making it a paid tutorial,
just thinking about it at the moment but you never know.

This is the little complimentary pack of balloons people will receive with their balloon orders this month.

Graham Lee:
Here we go with the instructions for the Digger.

Pre-stretch the Yellow 260 as you will need to use a lot of this balloon.
Inflate the balloon leaving 5 fingers un-inflated.

Make a 6 finger bubble followed by a 2 finger pinch twist.

You then need a 4 finger bubble followed by a 2 finger pinch twist
and then another 6 finger bubble and a 2 finger pinch twist.

Graham Lee:
You then need another 4 finger bubble and the last 2 finger pinch twist.

Attach the nozzle end of the balloon tightly around the last pinch twist.

You then need two 4 finger bubbles, this attaches diagonally across to the other pinch twist.

Then make a 4 finger bubble and attach to the other rear pinch twist.
This is the back of the Digger where the two 4 finger bubbles are.

Graham Lee:
Make a 4 finger bubble and twist this into the centre of the other two 4 finger bubbles.

Then twist your last 4 finger bubble to the last pinch twist.
You now have an "X" for the top body section of the Digger.

Inflate the Yellow 160 leaving 4 fingers un-inflated, attach the 160 to one of the rear pinch twists.
Make a 6 finger bubble followed by a 3 finger bubble.

The next bubble I have done as a 6 finger bubble.
This twist sits to the side of the 260 "X"


Graham Lee:
Push the remainder of the balloon to the other side of the centre of the "X"
There is a 4 finger bubble twisted under the centre of the "X"

Then make a 6 finger bubble followed by a 3 finger bubble.
You now twist the balloon into the other side of the Cab where you
twisted the 6 finger and 3 finger bubble at the front of the cab.

Then make another 3 finger bubble back to the other side of the front of the cab.
