June Model of the Month (Girl)
« on: May 28, 2018, 05:11:10 PM »
Not sure if we need to call this Girl/Doll/Princess etc

So at the moment Girl but I might change that later.
I prefer the one with the 160 blush for the neck but it does not sit so secure
so will be going with the other design where we used the 260 of the dress
for the neck. It sits so much more securely with the design and this is
meant to be a quick line work model for the real world I think it will be OK.

Here we go then with the instructions for this months model.

I'm using a chrome balloon for the dress which seems to be quite a bit
longer than a standard 260 balloon so you might need to make slightly
smaller if using a standard balloon or two 260's for the same look.

Inflate the chrome 260 leaving 4/5 fingers in-inflated.
Make a small pinch twist for the neck section followed
by a 4 finger bubble for the top of the body.

Then make an 8 finger bubble for the first section of the dress.
Then make another 8 finger bubble for the second section of the dress.
In all there will be five 8 finger bubbles for the dress.

Make two more 8 finger bubbles and wrap the balloon
securely into the waist section of the design.

Then make the last 8 finger bubble and twist this around the bottom of the
dress a couple of time to pull all the lower section nice and tightly together.

I like to have a 6 finger bubble and then deflate the rest of the balloon.
This 6 finger bubble sits inside the 8 finger bubbles and twist around the
waist section. It curves the 8 finger bubbles and gives the dress a little shape.

Looks like I will have to post one picture at a time, the forum is changing
the position I post the pictures so they are not coming up in number
order so that would be very confusing.

Your dress should look a little like this.

If using a standard 260 then possible do the body 3 fingers and the
lower section 7 fingers to get from one balloon.

Inflate the blush 350 to 5 fingers inflated and tie a knot for both ends.

Attach and tie the blush into the pinch twist of the dress.

I tie the knot twice and then cut off the excess balloon for a neater connection.

For the hair inflate the 160 leaving 6/7 fingers in-inflated.

Make two 1 finger pinch twists followed by a 3 finger fold twist.
Then make a 6 finger bubble followed by a 1 finger pinch twist.

Attach the two pinch twists to the top of the blush 350.

Then make a small half finger spacer bubble and wrap the balloon
around the pinch twist at the top of the dress.

Then come back with another half finger spacer bubble
back to the pinch twist on the hair.

Then have another 6 finger bubble back to the top of the head.

Going back to the lower pinch twist of the hair you need a 5 finger bubble.
This will give a little shape to the larger bubbles of the hair.

Then make a 4 finger bubble and twist into the waist section
followed by another 4 finger bubble back to the pinch twist
at the base of the head.

You now need to take the rest of the 160 balloon over the top of the
head and over the two pinch twists and the 3 finger fold twist.

Try to thin the balloon as you stretch it over the top of the head
as it gives the hair a little definition by doing this.

Push the air along the balloon as you wrap it over the top of the head.

Inflate the blush 160 for the arms, just over half way.
Make two 1 finger bubbles and a 2 finger bubble.

Twist the first and the third twist together to make the hand
and then push the first one finger bubble through the other
two bubbles to secure the hand into shape to lock it.

Twist a 5 finger bubble for the arm.

Push the rest of the balloon between the raar body section
and the hair where you made the two small spacer bubbles.
The balloon sits snugly between the body and hair.

As everyone knows I'm not great at the drawing etc but
if you did want to add a face this was my effort.

There is a Facebook group run by Patricia Bunnell for
artwork that you might like to check out.
