« on: April 25, 2019, 12:54:46 PM »
I have gone with the new two balloon Dinosaur that I came
up with I think possibly 3 months back now.

I will post the instructions up over the weekend.

A complimentary pack of balloons is sent out with every order so you can try
the design if you would like. Please post if you do have a go at making it,
thanks.

Here we go then with the step by step instructions.

Inflate the first 260 lime leaving 4/5 fingers un-inflated.

Make a 4 finger bubble followed by a 2 finger pinch twist and then another 4 finger bubble.

I pull the knot of the balloon up around the top pinch twist to help secure it all in place.

Make another 2 finger bubble and a 4 finger fold twist for the mouth section.

I then have a 10 finger bubble for the neck followed by a 2 finger pinch twist for the front body.

Then make two 4 finger leg bubbles and secure back into the front body pinch twist.
Deflate the rest of the balloon.

Inflate the next lime 260 leaving approx 3/4 fingers un-inflated.
Attach this to the front body pinch twist and make a 5 finger bubble
followed by a 2 finger pinch twist.

Make the second 4 finger bubble and twist into rear body pinch twist.

Then make a 4 finger bubble and twist into the front body pinch twist.

Make another 4 finger bubble and secure to the back pinch twist.

You then have to wrap very tightly the 260 balloon around the body/neck
and back to the rear body pinch twist. Make this as tight as possible.

As the top body bubble is 5 fingers this will pull up and to help shape
the body section as the two 4 finger bubbles sit underneath.

Shape the neck and tail with shock twists.

Inflate a white or possibly Ivory 260 for the eyes.

Attach to the back of mouth pinch twist, make a 3 finger
bubble and attach around the top pinch twist.

Make another 3 finger bubble into the back of the mouth pinch twist.

Discard rest of this balloon.

Then just add artwork,
I do rather like the look of this dinosaur and one to make in the real world.
