This months competition will be the angel wand, this was inspired from a design by Susie Hillman.

Everyone is more than welcome to post there designs, the complimentary packs will be sent out to all
who purchase from us during December. As usual the closing date will be the 7th Jan and the
winner chosen and announced on the 8th Jan. All who enter go onto the random wheel of fortune
to decide who wins the balloon modelling DVD.

After making 4/5 different designs I have settled on this one to explain.
I will post the instructions up later in the week and the complimentary packs
will be going out with the orders for December.

We might change the yellow 160's for the hair to gold though,
still trying to make my mind up.

Apologies the instructions have not gone up as yet,
I will try and do them ASAP, saying we have been a little busy lately is an understatement.

I have done the pictures for the fairy wand instructions,
I even painted on a face and will post the instructions up tonight.

Apologies they are pretty late but just been so busy and I need to take
the pictures during the day for better lighting.

The first part of the instructions, inflate the two 160 white leaving approx. 3 fingers un-inflated.
I then gently stretch these through my hand making them slightly longer.

Make a 1 finger bubble and a 2 finger fold twist,
push the 1 finger bubble through the fold twist so that it secures and will not come undone.

Make a 6 finger bubble for an arm and then a 2 finger pinch twist in the first balloon.
With the second balloon make the hand as above, the 6 finger bubble is then twisted into the pinch twist.
This second balloon you then make a 1 finger bubble and then a 2 finger pinch twist.

In the picture I have tied one of the bubbles together so you can see what each 160 should look like.
Hopefully this makes it a little clearer for the instructions.

In the picture the bubble that is tied goes around the pinch twist from the first 160 that you twisted.

Then make a 1 finger bubble in the first 160 and twist this into the pinch twist that will hold the wings in place.

You will then need between a 5/6 hands in length (20/24 finger bubble for each wing)

Where you have twisted the wings together come back to the pinch twist and tie the wings into place.

I have done a 6 finger bubble in both of the wings to give the look of the wing.
You can try a few variations here to see what you prefer the look to be like.

Both the 160's now need to go back to the pinch twist that will hold the arms in place,
just push the air out of the 160 (so you have a short un-inflated section)
as you stretch the balloon across from the pinch twist that holds the
wings in place to the pinch twist that holds the arms in place.
That is picture 9 but it's a little difficult to see.

The two 160's should now be at the front pinch twist and ready to fold into the wand section.
Twist the two 160's as many times as you can, the tighter and more twists the nicer it will look.

The rear of the design.

I used the purple Qualatex pump to inflate the 6" blush quick link with 2 strokes of the pump.
If you use the green pump this will inflate the balloon slightly bigger so you may need to let a little air out.
I tie a knot in the quick link to help this attach when twisting it into the hair later.

Inflate the 160 gold in your complimentary packs, I used yellow for the picture instructions.
before inflating the 160 stretch the metallic gold between your fingers, hold it between
your thumb and forefinger and pull the 160 up with your other hand, this will make the balloon
4/5 fingers longer but soften the metallic balloon as well as making it a little more pliable to use.

Make a 2 finger bubble followed by a 4 finger fold twist.

Make a 3 finger bubble followed by two 2 finger bubbles that you pinch twist.
Attach the top of the quick link into these two pinch twists.

Depending on how much you inflated the quick link will depend on the size for the hair bubbles.
On mine I twisted a 7 finger bubble followed by a 1 finger pinch twist.

For the picture I have tied the neck bubble in place, when making for the real world
I would just twist the spacer hair bubble described below around the neck bubble.
