Darren it look like you have a droopy gun :) ;)

The tank looks good though, I think I'm off to look at the DVD again. Seems to be some nice sculptures on the DVD.

SPIDER

I will be honest - i hate balloon spiders - the legs always get tangled and drive me nuts - but here goes...

The Geo is used for the body and i like the way the legs are secured beneath the Geo. The original head design is cool. Make sure you skip to the end of this DVD chapter to see a better way to make the head (didn't realise that as I struggled the first time around) - Graham also shares a slightly quicker Spider design using a printed spider-eyes balloon.

A nice spider and handy if you need a larger than average design.

BALLERINA

In this model the Geo makes the 'tutu' of the ballerina. I like the way the 350Q is secured in the Geo creating an attachment point for the 160Q legs. The ballerina's hair is a little difficult to follow. You may need to rewind a few times and watch/listen carefully. The hair could be simplified if you wanted a lovely ballerina that was quick enough for line work.

In my effort the body/legs seem out of proportion.

Nice design.

HANDBAG

This DVD contains two handbag designs. The first one uses a reversed geo and requires two raisins. It really helps to make the raisins as small as you can manage. My ones were too big and so the hand doesn't sit flat where it joins the heart shape.

Graham also includes a slightly more fancy option of this design and also includes a 2nd handbag design with a longer handle (which i haven't made here)

Slightly time consuming for line work due to the need for raisins but I am sure girls wiil enjoy carry these as a design accessories!

GEO DOG

The final design in this collection is a geo dog. The most challenging part is the face and twisting two side wall bubbles onto the side of a geo. The face is very nice and I like the way everything is secured via the eyes and the nose. With my attempt there isn't enough air in the top of the head and also it sits a little too low down against the body.

A good design with some nice original ideas.

SUMMARY

A great collection of original geo designs. As with all Graham's DVD the instructions are very clear and well explained.
If you thought Geos were only for flowers this would be a good DVD to get.

Worth a look!
