Balloon Chit Chat / CBA programme
« on: January 05, 2017, 11:33:22 AM »
I've been twisting for a few years now (part-time) and I've been very keen to learn decor, I've made a start and done a few designs for friends and family and the likes.

I keep hearing about the CBA programme and I think it's something I'd like to get to grips with, a new challenge for 2017 possibly. Have any of you twisters done the CBA program? Do you think it's possible to proficient at both decor and twisting?

Balloon Decor / Tips?
« on: August 30, 2016, 11:11:01 AM »
I've just taken the plunge into decor and helium. It's something that's been on the back burner for a while but I think the time is right to throw myself into a new challenge as I've been asked to supply some balloons for a family wedding. Fairly straight forward stuff, 7x (4 latex cluster with foil heart top) and 5x (3 latex cluster).

I've bought the Conwin adapters and a qualatex sizer, is there anyting else I would need? How long should I give myself, I've said 2 hours? Any tips for a newbie?

Balloon Decor / First proper attempts at decor
« on: August 12, 2016, 04:26:35 PM »
I've done a few small pieces before, but a friend was attending a baby shower so I used it as an excuse to try out some designs. I'm fairly pleased with the results.

I've seen the Pokeball in a few places now, there's a great one with 2 cd's and some electrical tape. But here are my attempts.

Picture Gallery / Princess Leia
« on: April 18, 2016, 10:17:47 AM »
I recently purchased the 'Cutie Dolls' from Nifty Balloons, and whilst I was practicing someone suggested the head/hair looked like Princess Leia. So I had a go of it in the same style. For the Star Wars fans I know Leia has a gun rather than a lightsabre but you get the idea.

Balloon Chit Chat / Alice Bands
« on: December 12, 2015, 09:35:32 PM »
I've recently tried the tutorial from Holly Hopper for an antler headband but struggled with narrow bands that I had available. Does anyone know of a reliable supplier for the bands, preferably the 1" (or 2cm) ones.
