I always stuggle trying to come up with something that is pitched just about right for people to try, something that is enough of a challenge but not too demanding that no one will have a go and attempt to make it.

So this month's challenge is the Saxophone.

Here's my finished 1st attempt... Not too shabby but I had to cheat and use a 260 for the mouthpiece as the marriage into the 160 proved a little challenging.

Is this cheating? I think they look very realistic.......
Sorry to butt in - but I have done an intro in the 'welcome' section...

Here we go with this months instructions;

I have made the saxaphone from different colours to help with the instructions :) Hopefully ;)

Yellow Balloon
Inflate either a round 5 inch balloon or a 660 and tulip/apple twist the balloon.

Red Balloon
Inflate a 360 to approx 28 fingers long, approx half way. Twist a 14 finger bubble followed by two, 2 finger pinch twists then a four finger bubble, two more 2 finger pinch twists, another 4 finger bubble and the last two pinch twists and get rid of excess.
