I made this over the weekend. He needs something adding from top of the mouth to the head section.

Picture Gallery / Captain Underpants
« on: January 21, 2021, 12:30:03 PM »
I saw a nice Captain Underpants by Chris Burch that I think used a Heart for his top torso.
So it inspired me to have a go, slightly changed the cloak to over his arms in
second picture. Then added some artwork.

Balloon Chit Chat / Pictures 2018
« on: January 21, 2021, 09:19:04 AM »
On Tuesday I went through all my old picture folders from 2018 and surprised myself with some
designs I had not made into Model of the Month or onto BalloonTube. I also found some I'd
like to revisit and change a little so it was a few hours well spent. I'm going to write the
designs here as I know I will lose the piece of paper I have written them down on.

Caribbean Dog
Mudguard
Dory
Yoda
Goofy
Unicorn
Crown
Seal
Llama
Cat
Fishing Rod
Shark
Dino
Dog and 160 Ears
Teddy
Push Bike
Body
Dove & Ring
Dress Front
Cheshire Wand
Koala

That should keep me busy for a while. I did make a couple of the designs.

Balloon Chit Chat / Zoom Balloon Workshops
« on: January 20, 2021, 03:48:29 PM »
I'm looking into running some Zoom online balloon workshops. I'm doing a couple of trial ones this week,
and if all goes OK I will then purchase the Zoom Pro and offer up to 90 minute sessions.
The plan is to have a minimum of 5 people and a maximum of 10 to keep it small and intimate.
Plus I think that would be a manageable number and a better learning experience,
the sessions would be £10 each and would include VAT.
You can claim this back on your yearly accounts.
If all goes to plan the first workshop will be on a Valentines Day design.
Any thoughts and comments most welcome 😁

Balloon Chit Chat / Valentines
« on: January 17, 2021, 12:50:47 PM »
As I have been making the Roses lately I then thought we should perhaps incorporate them into a design.

The Roses thread is here if you'd like to see how they evolved,
https://www.balloonchat.co.uk/balloon-chit-chat/roses-11791/

I started off making a guy design and changed it about a little, the first one he is top heavy and too chunky.
I prefer the jacket on the taller one but his arms are too short so will make a little longer next time  ;D

Balloon Chit Chat / Poodle
« on: January 14, 2021, 03:53:53 PM »
I have just made a Poodle for the Challenge thread Danielle and I do and will post that later
but decided to try a simpler design, not to keen on the way it looks at the moment.
Definitely a works in progress, he he.

I liked the body and feet etc, it was the head structure that I struggled with.

Balloon Chit Chat / Challenge 2021
« on: January 11, 2021, 05:58:07 PM »
I have been having a tidy up of my balloon photo collection and taking a look at some
designs we would like to have a go at for the challenge thread for this year.

We are back to our old friend, Masayoshi Matsumoto for the Poodle design,
his Instagram page is, https://www.instagram.com/isopresso_balloon/
and on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/masayoshi.matsumoto.5

I sent the Poodle to Danielle this afternoon and we both agreed we liked the design and would like to attempt to re-create it  ;D

This is the thread to look at the challenge for 2020, https://www.balloonchat.co.uk/balloon-chit-chat/challenge-2020/

This is the thread to look at the challenge for 2019, https://balloonchat.co.uk/balloon-chit-chat/challenge/

Balloon Chit Chat / Heart Design
« on: January 11, 2021, 10:36:42 AM »
I was having a play with Antonio's one balloon heart design again and made some variations on a theme.

The Orange heart I believe is the one I made from Antonio's workshop, it was two tears ago now so guessing a little.
The two I made are from two balloons and double thickness.

Balloon Chit Chat / Roses
« on: January 09, 2021, 11:25:05 AM »
We were discussing Roses the other day and I mentioned I don't really have a go to Rose that I use.
So there was the next day and a half making Roses, ended up with over 15 variations on a theme.
Some had potential and some went straight to the bin  ;D

As I made so many I'm not sure in what order they were made to get to the final design.

Balloon Chit Chat / Bulldog
« on: January 05, 2021, 04:12:25 PM »
I was trying to make a Bulldog, this is face number five I think, will add the before tries as well.
It took a little while to get right and work out.

Model Of The Month / January Model of the Month (Jet Plane)
« on: December 30, 2020, 02:28:11 PM »
I have gone with the Jet as the model of the month. I first made the design way back in December 2016.
Not sue how its missed out this long on being model of the month.
I might have tweaked it a little since then but looking back at the pictures it looks very similar.

If anyone would like to help out then we have started up the "Buy Me A Coffee"
page where you can buy a coffee or two or even more if you would like.
It will all help to keep the forum running....Thanks XXxx

This is the link, https://www.buymeacoffee.com/myballoonart
at the moment 14 people have kindly donated which is appreciated.

I keep changing the size of the wings, these ones here are 9 and 6 finger bubbles.
I will post some pictures at the end where they are 12 and 6 and then 8 and 5.
You have to choose the look you prefer.

Balloon Chit Chat / Jet Plane
« on: December 28, 2020, 11:03:07 AM »
I had to quickly make a Jet plane for a birthday celebration.
So made two variations, was not keen on the look of the nose cone for the larger Jet.
Changed it about a couple of times and still not happy.

Balloon Chit Chat / Train
« on: December 26, 2020, 12:43:33 PM »
I was thinking what would we have as Model of the Month for January and a Train came to mind.
So trying to make a simple'ish line work train that some might use.

This is how the trains came about.

I first made this style of heart back at The Florida Superjam a couple of years back now.

Picture Gallery / Star
« on: December 24, 2020, 09:57:56 AM »
Sally sent me a picture of the star so we made it in 160, 260 and 350.
The 160 and 260 were both made in Red so you have to look closely.
