Balloon Chit Chat / Car

Balloon Chit Chat / Up The Movie
« on: May 10, 2022, 03:53:57 PM »
I was trying out the head structure for the guy from UP. I did google and I believe his name is Carl Fredricksen.
The smaller head was made Sunday night and I did not get a picture when it was first
made so does not look at its best and coming undone at some of the joints.

We have possibly made the glass's a little too big but as he is a caricature perhaps this does not matter?

We are planning four days for the rest of this year, two 2 day events in Birmingham.
One for Sept and then one later on in Nov, we hope to have an international balloon artiste over and then two from the UK.
All the days will be filmed so if you are unable to make any you can catch up with them online.

The cost is just £100 for all four days and we do need 20 people signing up by the end of July to make this happen.
If you can spread the word it would be very much appreciated, booking details,

Any questions then please ask away, thanks xx.

Balloon Chit Chat / Happy Birthday Balloon Chat
« on: April 01, 2022, 11:33:53 AM »
We started Balloon Chat up on the 1st April 2008, so the forum is 14 years old today.
They used to say a forum had an 8 year life expectancy and I think that was about right as well.

The forum has only kept going these past few years as I just post all my designs on here rather than to Facebook.

I would like to say a big thank you to all those that have helped to keep the forum going over the years and put designs,
topics, discussions and threads up. It was very much appreciated and THANK YOU XXxx

This is a Crown design I will be teaching at the line work workshop that is coming up in April.
