@Darren What has been your best and worst experience whilst twisting?

My best experience whilst twisting was a little child who was very sad and as I gave her a balloon flower, she forget to cry and was happy and smiled.That was a very great experience to feel what a person can do with balloons.

I know that it isn't the 11th of may, but Darren asked me his question and I answered.Sorry if my english is not perfect.I am from germany :-)

Marc


My worst experience whilst twisting was a 6 inch heart balloon that pops as I inflated it by mouth and my face and my eyes where very red and they hurt very much and I had to stop twisting.That was at a disco and I twisted infront of very beautiful girls.

6, What's your favourite age to entertain? I entertain for every age from a little child to old people

7, Do you have the same act but vary the presentation for all ages or do you have set acts for different ages? I have nothing special for different ages, I twist what they want !

8, What’s your favourite thing to make at the moment? My favourite thing at the moment is the new ebook "Something for everyone" from Thelma Levett and her great models.

9, What is the most asked for model? A flower, a heart, but I can't say that there is a most asked model, because I can twist what the people want ( Not everything ;-) but the most they request :-)

16, What’s the biggest thing you’ve ever made?
The biggest thing with balloons I have ever made was a palm tree with a monkey (Sorry, I was not able to do bigger things, because I don't know how and don't know what, but I want to do bigger things for decoration.

17, What has been your proudest achievement in our wonderful world of twisted latex? Every balloon model I can do and can remember after I was twisting that makes me proud ;-)

24, Who's the most famous person you have made a balloon creation for ? I never did a balloon creation for a famous person :-(

25, How do you keep the enthusiasm going & what still excites you about our great world of latex I change the balloon color more often ;-)

26, What inspires or is your thought process in coming up with a new design The person who inspires me with her great balloon models is Thelma Levett.I love her work and like to twist  her balloon models.I don't develop my own designs so far.Maybe in the future if I get better and better

27, Who would you like to work with dead or alive? I want to work with Thelma Levett and Graham Lee.
