I wouldn't worry about getting any thumb down, you always get them with anything Graham, you can't please all the people all the time.

Nice to see you are nearly at 500 views, that is pretty good :D

I'm trying to load up tutorial two onto YouTube which is the one balloon rhino made with two balloons.
Fingers crossed it all works out.

We are going recording tomorrow, fingers crossed for the next ten designs.
Still only one balloon models,

Swan
Dave
Rabbit
Dog, ears.
Bike
Dinosaur
Teddy
Sausage Dog, new.
Pony
Machine gun

I think the one balloon machine gun is a killer, see what I did there? He He.

I will be putting up one tutorial a week so by my reckoning that will take us up to the new year.

Ha ha, so am I.

I started filming at 11 and have done five up till now,
infact my one balloon Dave (Dove) took the longest and I think we went with version five eventually.

Lunch time and then the last three to do,

Machine Gun
Sausage Dog
Dinosaur

Well I think I need to learn to count. There I was at 3.30 all happy as I thought I had made 10 tutorials.
Went to take a few pictures and could only see nine...............oops. I forgot to do the Rabbit,
so at 4.30 I had to re-set and got it done in one take, the light was not too bright and I think
you can see the back light shinning up, but then it's not a professional set up.........that's for sure, he he.

You can see by the picture we did not get this filmed with all one takes.

I have just posted the next instalment for BalloonTube, it's a one balloon snake
which I think has a different look and feel to other one balloons snakes that I have seen.

You can also add a scrap so its a one balloon snake with two balloons ;)

I have posted week five, the one balloon sword onto BalloonTube.
It's a variation on a theme and looks very different to other sword designs I have seen.

Did I show you the sword when you were over Kenny?
A few of the designs are many years old, the swan is fairly new and the one balloon machine gun
I made when I was at eurojam convention possibly 3 years ago. The snake is a couple of months old
and the rhino I think was after the Bishops Stortford day in January.

Come to think of it some are old and some fairly new :)
You can see I'm rather decisive there, he he.

I may have done, It's been so long since i was over i can't remember :D .

I do tend to show a lot of things when i come over as i attend so rarely and i have so much to share. Anyway it's no big deal i am sure many people come up with the same designs in our balloon world. I do remember how i came up with it though, it was for Halloween and was trying to make a base for a small pumpkin for line work, i remember i got a lot of cheap led's to put inside each pumpkin. Anyway that's how i came up with that base, i remember making it and it looked like it would make a great sword, it's also a great base for a spiral sword as well. If you add a pinch twist  to each corner and make a few of them, then connect the pinch twists you can come up with some really cool designs!! ;)

I have just loaded up this weeks tutorial which is the one balloon parrot on a swing
but we have a slight problem............there is no sound.

So when I get home form a show I will have to take it down and put next weeks up.

Last weeks has 2 minutes at the end of a blank screen and this weeks no sound, double oops!!

So if you fancy making the parrot with me miming you have a few hours till I get home from my show.
