Add some artwork, the last photo is a variation on a theme which I think I prefer.

Details on raisin twist and shock/friction twist can be found here,

Thanks to the three members that did attempt the model last month, hopefully the instructions will help/tempt a few more to have a go.
If anything is not clear then please just ask, always happy to help out.

Thanks for the instructions Graham. Here's a quick attempt. Really like this design and will keep tweaking it til I get it right.

Thanks,

Michael

So I'm just updating the elephant as this has something to do with the post I put on facebook yesterday about I had a good idea.
This elephant I made from the instructions above,

I then made a second elephant as I would possibly had made it now a few years on. I have added a pinch twist under the 6 petal flower so the flower sits nicer.
I made 6 separate fold twists rather than use the flower technique on the original instructions.
I thought the elephant looked a little too big so made the legs 4 finger bubbles and not 5. I used a quick link and got rid of the 5" round and raisin twist.
I inflated the quick link with the qualatex pump with 3 strokes of the pump.
I took the pinch twist above the trunk and put that at the back between the cheeks so the head all sits nice and then used the 160 with a 3 finger bubble to sit under the trunk.

The eyebrows make him look a little scary.

Here they are both together at a funny angle so it was a better shot for the camera.
