Balloon Review 140 : O.C.D by Matt Falloon DVD

Matt is an incredibly good twister and I was excited to see the launch of his first DVD. Matt has released some designs on balloon-animals.com previously but these ones are all new and original. The quality of the DVD is excellent, very well produced and Matt is an excellent teacher.

Be warned - this DVD is not for beginners. The cover promises a double frumple twist - argh!

Available from Continental Sales priced $45 - http://www.continentalsales.net/item.php?it=8446&id=343

Let see what we have here....

SHEEP

This sheep is incredibly simple, very fast to make, perfect for line work and the way Matt has designed this sheep is ingenious. Only takes 1-2 mins to construct and wow what an impressive model. My advice would be to stock up on white geos... you are going to make lots of these!

Brilliant!

BUTTERFLY

A lovely butterfly design to be held on a hand band or worn on the wrist. A good application of a 321Q for the face and the body. I really love the way Matt mounts the balloon onto the headband using a Geo - you will love the simplicity of this once you have watched the DVD. This method can be used to quickly and neatly mount any model onto a headband.

BEE

A spin off variation of the Butterfly is this Bumblebee. Fairly hard to take a decent photo. This one is OK but not sure when I will use it. Quick to make using a 321Q yellow.

ELEPHANT

Most applications for the new Q-links to date has been nothing more than a way to use a traditional round balloon without the need for a raisin. This design takes the use of the Q-link to another level to create this incredible elephant. I am frequently asked for elephants on my walkabout gigs and struggle to create a really nice one that can be made quickly. This one is absolutely brilliant. It looks so cool. Just a shame there are no Q-links in grey available.

Matt also shows a variation to create a 'mammoth' by adding tusks.

DOLPHIN

A very topical balloon given I spent some of today learning Graham's dolphin at our Care and Share day - this one is fairly complicated and uses a heart as the main body. In my mind the body and mouth shape isn't quite right and I prefer the traditional dolphin look. Fairly time consuming to make and I would struggle to find a 'real world' use for this design.

SEAHORSE

A very nice seahorse design. The body uses a round balloon with a side wall bubble so you will need to keep this balloon nice and soft. The only difficult part is the tail which requires an incredibly deep tulip / s-twist. This is not the the faint hearted. Matt shows a great way of making the tail but i did really struggle so I cheated. I used the technique where you insert a 160Q inside the 260Q and pull it as you inflate it to make a nice tight curl in the tail.

The stingray is not shown in the DVD - that is my design ;-)

I love this DVD, and yes, the sheep is a true gem. It has replaced my previous favorite (from Wowables 2) as my favorite sheep figure!

I just made the lamb. I have made it in to a balloon cup for a prize today. I love it, so easy to do as well!
