Balloon sports car
« on: October 20, 2012, 12:21:25 PM »
Hi
Has anyone done a large balloon sport car scuplture.  I can't seem to find any examples of any on the web.  Will have to wing it from my sons hotwheel cars models... Anyone done one here.  Much appreciated with any tips.
Ta June

Thelma did a Pink cadi that looked a little like the Lady Penelope Thunderbird car, I think it's posted here some where.

You could try this simpler version - this is not my creation.

Maybe I should invest in some dvd for the future.  Do you recommend D Grist ones?  I like to do large sculptures but not the massive ones.  Which is the website for you.  Ta
