Balloon Chit Chat / Valentines
« on: Today at 12:50:47 PM »
As I have been making the Roses lately I then thought we should perhaps incorporate them into a design.

The Roses thread is here if you'd like to see how they evolved,

I started off making a guy design and changed it about a little, the first one he is top heavy and too chunky.
I prefer the jacket on the taller one but his arms are too short so will make a little longer next time  ;D

Balloon Chit Chat / Poodle
« on: January 14, 2021, 03:53:53 PM »
I have just made a Poodle for the Challenge thread Danielle and I do and will post that later
but decided to try a simpler design, not to keen on the way it looks at the moment.
Definitely a works in progress, he he.

I liked the body and feet etc, it was the head structure that I struggled with.

Balloon Chit Chat / Challenge 2021
« on: January 11, 2021, 05:58:07 PM »
I have been having a tidy up of my balloon photo collection and taking a look at some
designs we would like to have a go at for the challenge thread for this year.

We are back to our old friend, Masayoshi Matsumoto for the Poodle design,
his Instagram page is,
and on Facebook,

I sent the Poodle to Danielle this afternoon and we both agreed we liked the design and would like to attempt to re-create it  ;D

This is the thread to look at the challenge for 2020,

This is the thread to look at the challenge for 2019,

Balloon Chit Chat / Heart Design
« on: January 11, 2021, 10:36:42 AM »
I was having a play with Antonio's one balloon heart design again and made some variations on a theme.

The Orange heart I believe is the one I made from Antonio's workshop, it was two tears ago now so guessing a little.
The two I made are from two balloons and double thickness.

Balloon Chit Chat / Roses
« on: January 09, 2021, 11:25:05 AM »
We were discussing Roses the other day and I mentioned I don't really have a go to Rose that I use.
So there was the next day and a half making Roses, ended up with over 15 variations on a theme.
Some had potential and some went straight to the bin  ;D

As I made so many I'm not sure in what order they were made to get to the final design.

Balloon Chit Chat / Bulldog
« on: January 05, 2021, 04:12:25 PM »
I was trying to make a Bulldog, this is face number five I think, will add the before tries as well.
It took a little while to get right and work out.

Model Of The Month / January Model of the Month (Jet Plane)
« on: December 30, 2020, 02:28:11 PM »
I have gone with the Jet as the model of the month. I first made the design way back in December 2016.
Not sue how its missed out this long on being model of the month.
I might have tweaked it a little since then but looking back at the pictures it looks very similar.

If anyone would like to help out then we have started up the "Buy Me A Coffee"
page where you can buy a coffee or two or even more if you would like.
It will all help to keep the forum running....Thanks XXxx

This is the link,
at the moment 14 people have kindly donated which is appreciated.

I keep changing the size of the wings, these ones here are 9 and 6 finger bubbles.
I will post some pictures at the end where they are 12 and 6 and then 8 and 5.
You have to choose the look you prefer.

Balloon Chit Chat / Jet Plane
« on: December 28, 2020, 11:03:07 AM »
I had to quickly make a Jet plane for a birthday celebration.
So made two variations, was not keen on the look of the nose cone for the larger Jet.
Changed it about a couple of times and still not happy.

Balloon Chit Chat / Train
« on: December 26, 2020, 12:43:33 PM »
I was thinking what would we have as Model of the Month for January and a Train came to mind.
So trying to make a simple'ish line work train that some might use.

This is how the trains came about.

Balloon Chit Chat / Love Heart
« on: December 24, 2020, 10:02:12 AM »
I first made this style of heart back at The Florida Superjam a couple of years back now.

Picture Gallery / Star
« on: December 24, 2020, 09:57:56 AM »
Sally sent me a picture of the star so we made it in 160, 260 and 350.
The 160 and 260 were both made in Red so you have to look closely.

Picture Gallery / Jesus
« on: December 23, 2020, 06:06:32 PM »
I saw a face design from Masayoshi Matsumoto who posted it onto Facebook
and it inspired me to make my variation on the design.

Someone commented it looked a little like Jesus so I then carried on to make the said design.
I made the foot to large so re made and changed the front to 3 pinch twists so it looked more like a foot.

Balloon Chit Chat / Candy Cups
« on: December 23, 2020, 04:59:14 PM »
I made a Santa head design that would fit OK on a candy cup.

Balloon Chit Chat / Nutcracker head design
« on: December 23, 2020, 04:53:36 PM »
I just made the head design possibly 10 days back now so thought I'd post it.

Balloon Chit Chat / Skateboard
« on: December 21, 2020, 08:06:27 PM »
It was Zakh my grandsons 14th birthday in the week and he is heavily into skateboarding, it used to be scootering
but he changed a little while back and goes skating for a couple of hours every day.

So I was asked to make a design of Zakh himself and this is what I came up with.
Version one was a little on the small size so we tried a larger looking face but
decided on keeping with the smaller design and adding to it.

The body was a little to long to leg ratio so we changed this in pictures to come.
