With all orders sent out in June this is the complimentary bag of balloons
that you will receive. If you do make the sea horse then please post a picture.
Thanks, instructions on the way.

Inflate the 260 balloon leaving 5 finger un-inflated.

Make two 1 finger pinch twists followed by a 2 finger
bubble, a 3 finger bubble and a 1.5 finger pinch twist.

Then make another 2 finger bubble back between the 2 and 3 finger bubble.

Make a 4 finger bubble for the top of the head and twist into the single pinch twist.

Make a 5 finger bubble for the neck, a 4 finger bubble and then a 1 finger pinch twist.
Then twist another 4 finger bubble back to the bottom of the neck.

Twist the last 4 finger bubble for the body and twist into the pinch twist.

Inflate the 160 leaving a 5/6 fingers un-inflated.
Make two 1 finger pinch twists. Leave a long section at the
knot so this can be twisted around the main section of head
and nose of sea horse. This helps to secure the head together.

Push the air along a little so u have a small un-inflated
part of the 160 to twist around the pinch twist.

Hopefully the picture helps as well to explain this.

Push one of the pinch twists through to the other side of the face.

Make a 3 finger bubble followed by a 2 finger bubble and one more 3 finger bubble.
Twist into the pinch twist.

Make three 1.5 finger bubbles for down the neck and twist into position.

You now need a 1.5 finger bubble, then a 1 finger pinch twist.
The wings for the sea horse are a 6 finger bubble and then two 4 finger bubbles.
Twist back around the pinch twist for the first wing. Do again for the other side.

Make the last 1.5 finger bubble and deflate the rest of the 160.
Twist into the lower pinch twist.

Curl the sea horse tail and warm up the outer side of the circle with
your breath or gentle pinching the outer section of the balloon with
finger and thumb to shock twist the tail into shape.

I like the pinch twist at the front of the tail to help push the tail back
before it goes forward. Its more pleasing to the eye for me.
