Balloon Review 022 - BALLOON MAGIC MAGAZINE #51

This is my second Balloon Magic Magazine review and I had chosen this one because with Christmas coming up some of these designs may prove useful. These magazines cost just $7 and are available from various sources.

SANTA'S MASK by Dee White

This is fantastic. I have been having so much fun with this Santa Mask over the last week. It looks really good, is fun to wear and has been a great success. Made of 360Qs and one 646Q, this design is big and bold and really stands out. I've had my $7 worth already!

RACOON by Dee White

This model has a really interesting design to make up the main body of the Racoon. Very useful for future models. My version of the Racoon doesn't look as nice as the original. It looks better in real life than in the photo. I had fun making it and it is fairly easy.

TURTLE by Dee White

If you are looking for a fast and simple Turtle then this is a good one. Not so sure it has the best shape for a turtle but it is quick and easy to make. The children I showed it to thought it was a frog!

HIPPO by Dee White

A quick and easy hippo. The use of tulip twists for the ears is a nice touch but if speed is important then normal bubbles can be uses. Fast to make and could be used for line work.

GIRAFFE by Andrew McDonald

A really cute Giraffe. This is quick to make and I like the use of a yellow round for the nose and mouth. I decided to mount this one on a geo-base and add a tree. It made a quick and easy display piece.

Hi!
Some very cute models.
Last year I tried and subscribe to Balloon Magic magazine through Qualatex Italian Importer but, at the end, they didn't fulfill my request. Should I get in contact directly with Pioneer? Do they send the magazine over to Italy?
Thanks for your information.
Best regards :D

This is horrible news! I have been making a giraffe that looks a lot like that for the past 2 years. I use a pink round and the little antlers are made of a mocha 160 that then spirals as a mane down the neck. I was about to film a video for my channel showing how to make it. And to think I had something original...

Don't be disheartened, you created something that is in print already, that can only be a good thing that your model is good enough to be sold! Someone else had the same idea, and got there before you! So i suppose it saves you doing the research to see if its been made before.

You hear magicians arguing about this all the time, both have the same idea and release the ideas and then argue that one copied the other! So suppose you don't have to go down that route now! (not sure if this would be the same as balloon models? )

Hi Dylan

Go ahead and do your design. There are so many giraffe designs around. Many use a round balloon as the nose and so it is very hard to know who the originator was. You haven't copied anyone. Great minds think alike!

STAR

A great star that can be used for many purposes. This one uses a single 260Q and is very fast to make. It took me two attempts to get it right as I read the instructions wrong on the first attempt.

CHRISTMAS TREE

This Christmas Tree is intend to be a hat. However it is free standing and looks great. I put it on top of a computer monitor and it hasn't caught fire as yet! Very nice.

SUMMARY

Another brilliant edition of this magazine and incredible value at just $7. The Santa Hat is the best thing for me here but all the designs are equally useable and good.
