29nth Balloon Sculpture, Adolescent Samurai Turtle


I was surfing YouTube and came across a really well designed, let’s call it, Adolescent Samurai Turtle and felt I had to try it. I am going to fiddle with it a little more as I feel the guy is making the head more complicated than necessary but I could be wrong there.

I found this to be a pretty decent construction design by rouwster1. The head was a bit tricky and I will add to this post later if I was able to find an easier approach.

I did not have brown for shell so I used blush instead. I also did not make arm band. I need to invest in more colors as well as some 160’s which are smaller or thinner I should say twisting balloons. I also made a more simple shell than rouwster1.

(Yes there is an easier way. Just using one larger loop you can put bandana and face around it and save some steps.)
