Leslie Interview 11/20th Oct
« on: October 11, 2010, 11:24:10 PM »
Hi Everybody!

I'm a programmer in a guarantor organization (like-a-bank) in Hungary, Budapest.
Balloon twisting is a hobby for me and a method to teach creativity to my daughters.
I try to get some money from balloon twisting, but till now not too much success have. Maybe later. But when never, then it was a good game.

And now let's see the questions!

1, What road led you into balloon modelling?

My daughters got balloon bears in a big supermarket, but one of them popped out in the hot car. Can't stand the cry of a child, so I sad: "Don't cry, I will make you another". And she came for her new balloon bear next day...

2, when did you get started with balloons?

In 2010 May.

3, What’s your best twisting experience?

The smile on the face of my daughters when I say: "I've twisted this figure for you!".

4, What is the worst thing that has ever happened to you during a ballooning/entertaining session?

When the balloon pops out at the last bubble of the figure. Brrrrrr...

5, What do you most enjoy about twisting & why?

Making a new figure or design. Because it's mine: overcome the challenge.

6, What's your favourite age to entertain?

I don't entertain yet, but I think for children would be better.

7, Do you have the same act but vary the presentation for all ages or do you have set acts for different ages?

I don't entertain yet, but I think different ages needs different act sets but at least different presentation.

8, What’s your favourite thing to make at the moment?

In global? Listen to the school experiences of my daughters.
In balloon twisting? Anything what challenge is for me.

9, What is the most asked for model?

Flower bouquet - asked once - and a little bunny - asked once - for colleagues. Is it not a big deal, right?

10, What do you tend to do more of if stuck in the 'balloon production line' model?

Never twisted for a line yet.

Odie. Several big balloon artist praised.

18, What advice would you give to someone starting out, or wanting to increase their business?

I think, for the time being I need advice...

19, What road in latex do you see yourself taking in the future

Don't know. I think, I'm too old to be a great balloon artist like ... and ... or ... .
Good enough for me to make simple balloon figures or sculptures and sometimes sell them.
After all, this is a hobby for me.

After two orders can't answer this question...
