How I started...

How I got started in Balloon twisting by Kate Lawry
I have been a face painter for 10 years and quite often worked with balloon modellers and watched them at work thinking how great it was. I remember years ago asking a modeller (it was Lord Geoffrey) to show me how to make a flower and he kindly did but I went back to my face painting, thinking its not as easy as it looks!
My customers kept asking if I did balloons as well as face painting and I only knew very basic models, but I starting doing both at parties and they seemed happy with flowers and swords, but I wasn't.
I wasn't confident in what I was making so went to a few of Grahams Care and Share days and now I'm hooked, and after going to the Millenium Jam well I keep dreaming about balloons and my husband thinks I've gone weird!
I'm definately into balloons now, its just amazing what you can make out of latex! I now think this is what I've been looking for, I studied art and Sculpture at University and I have now found my new medium!

Sorry to hear you have the balloonfever now,.... did you know there's no cure for that?

 :mrgreen:

But I've seen at TMJ that the fever infected you in a good way.
It will make you better every day, or worse in your husbands opinion.

By the way, how did your kitchen look when you came back from Belgium?
 ;)
