Hello all, well here is Balloon challenge number 48 and its a bit different this week as I want to see your hands (not your hands but your balloon hands), Hands have always been a bit of a problem for me especially when the sculptures are on the smaller side, I generally use any of 4 different hands that I make and here I am showing you 2 of them, a simple baby hand and a more complex lifelike hand.

Now I am not expecting you all so make your hands the same as mine but what I do want to see is how you do your hands? do you keep it simple or do you go crazy? It would be great to see all your hands.


Rob

This is my default hand (sometimes attached by making a double pinch twist in the blush for a wrist or by breaking off and attaching to double pinch twist in the arm, or breaking off and marriage twisting to arm.
A single pinch twist turns it into a foot.

I just realised I have not chosen a winner as yet.

Well although it was a hands competition I think due to the cuteness of the little foot and the cute little hand too I have chosen Stuart (Areyouhappydad).

I think Graham cheated as his last entry looked a bit suspect to me. :lol:

I will endeavour to join in the next round :D

Rob
