Blog – Balloon City
What a great day we all had teaching at Anagram Balloon Day. My first time to co-teach with Chris Horne. I hope it wont be the last. We had a full house at burton +BURTON. There were many first time students as well as some seasoned pros!
Chris Horne and I took turns teaching different techniques on how to attach and assemble foil balloons. Together we showed over 15 designs.
If you use 14 Diamondz it makes a perfect circle.
Using foil curves to make giant air filled topiaries for the ceiling.
This is one of the few designs we made using helium. We used packing tape to attach magic arch balloons together on the sides and then attached the letter balloons through the center hole.
Chris Horne made this stunning chandelier out of one Orbz, some 6 point stars, crescents and heats. A very clever design that can also be turned upside down to float over a table.
Now…. I know what you are thinking…. “Dang I wish I had been at the class”. Fear Not!!!!
