The tulip/apple twist instructions from my lecture notes made a few years back.

OK I understand the theory of how to do this but I have real problems extracting my finger! The balloon often develops a hole and then deflates, not quite the look I am going for. The balloon always ends up really tight on my finger. I have managed this twist a few times but more by luck than judgement, more balloons have ended up in the bin rather than as a model. Any ideas on how I can part myself from my balloon without causing a leak?

Put your finger in your wet tongue ( or in water) before doing this :mrgreen: . Oscar

Hi Oscar, thanks for the suggestion but I have already tried this and it didn't seem to help me much. I think I must have odd fingers!

no, I have the same problem as well, and now don't over-inflate the balloon. This makes it easier to extract my finger.

Ok, thanks for the suggestions, not inflating the balloon does seem to help, I just need to do this slow and gentle and then the success rate improves.

You should try doing tulup twists in 646's, where your whole fist goes in :D :D :D
