099 - TURKEY TIME BY CJ NELSON

Balloon Review 099 - Turkey Time by CJ Nelson

Available from Balloon Parade priced $5 -http://www.thetwisterscookbook.com

This is the first video download from the new venture by balloonchat member CJ Nelson. Always nice to see a newcomer to the balloon instructions market.

This download is for two Turkey designs. One made mainly from 260Qs and the other one upscaled using 646Qs.

To start the site is easy to navigate and the process to download the videos is easy. This set comes supplied as two video files which can be played back in the normal way on your PC. The video quality is fine but the lighting needs a little adjusting. This doesn't detract from the excellent tutorial, handy tips and the enjoyable experience to be had from making these. Bubble sizes are generally given in finger sizes and everything explained step by step.

So let's see what we have here.

260Q Turkey

The first Turkey uses mainly 260Qs. This really is a pleasing design. This turkey makes a wonderful display piece and can be adjusted to make it simpler and faster to make for line or restaurant work. The great touch here is the use of 321Qs for the wings. This gives the turkey the perfect body shape. Careful bubble sizing is important for the tail to make it look even and make sure you have a nice big pinch twist at the rear to keep everything in shape. The tail loops need to be made nice and tight so everything stays in place.

I got a lovely reaction from this at a recent Christmas party.

646Q Turkey

It is rare to see two almost identical designs in one package. This is handy as you can use some of the sizing principals CJ teaches to upscale any of your existing 260Q or 350Q designs. Working with 646Qs is always fund but you will not find anything challenging here other than the loops on the tail feathers which again need to be snug and tight. Whilst the large turkey is impressive, I can't help thinking it is too big! I guess it could be mounted on a column or as part of a bigger display.

For me the beauty is in the smaller 260Q turkey but it is good to have a comparison.

SUMMARY

Two well constructed video tutorials at an amazing bargain bucket price of $5. There isn't anything ground breaking here as I have seen many turkey tutorials before, however, these are delivered with competence and I am excited to see what the future holds for The Twisters Cookbook.

Well done CJ. Worth investing if you need some Turkeys!
