I recently made this and this is my new all time favorite sculpture I have made. I literally worried myself sick over this project and felt like running away and crying and quitting because of how much it intimidated me. I was somehow able to channel my Woody Allen like neurosis into productive energy, lol. I am still in disbelief that I made this! I really feel like I leveled up in my balloon making. This is my baby.

A quote that keeps me focused and that keeps me from running away from scary projects is this, “A professional is a man who can do his job when he doesn’t feel like it. An amateur is a man who can’t do his job when he does feel like it.” James Agate. My commitment to being professional trumps my insecurity,lol.

Balloon Chit Chat / What is your shame balloon?

I don't know why- but I cannot make a decent Om Nom to save my life,lol. It is my shame balloon,lol.

I am just not happy with any of the versions I have made,lol. Does anyone else feel this way about anything?

love this! I need to practice this and add it to my repertoire for birthday parties as I need to balance boy choices. I am slanted too much towards girl choices, probably because I have a little girl,lol,

there isn't a tutorial for a Dalek but there is a video of a guy making a small one, about a 1ft to a 1ft and a half if I had to guess.

it is pretty fast.

My Dalek is based heavily on a cake weave design, I used that as a template and worked it into a Dalek. It is hard to explain especially since technical talk is not my forte,lol.

sorry I was not of more help to you. hope someone more technical savvy can help and also who knows what you might find with experimentation. :)

I made this display for a Daddy and Daughter Date Night Event at a Chick-fil-A near my house.
I took inspiration from a Justin Reams' cow mask  I had seen a picture of and ran with it, put my own twist on things and came up with the below. This was a labor of love. :)

This is a Patricia Balloona original design. :) I wanted to originally call it, Look Ma! No Pole! but I decided on Hugs and Kisses instead,lol.
