So today is my 2 year balloon twisting anniversary! I made my first balloon animals September 27th 2012.
My balloon twisting origin story here, https://patriciaballoona.wordpress.com/2013/03/25/kismet-and-eudaimonia-how-i-got-into-balloon-twisting/.
I had something huge planned to celebrate but it is going to have to wait until October for reasons to be revealed later. Just know that I have plans to make my biggest balloon sculpture to date in a few weeks from now!
I decided to make a Nifty Balloons 6 ft. tall Elephant only in pink. I combined what I learned from their Masks tutorial package and also their Jumbos tutorial package and combined the two. They actually have a picture of a Jumbo Elephant as it were on their Facebook page and they had it standing on top of a ball which is totally different than their tutorials and they do not show you how to do.
I took it upon myself to recreate only with my own flavoring their Jumbo Elephant.
I did my ears differently than they did on their picture and made it pink. I also added feathers to the top of the head and also used black feathers for eyelashes.
I made it holding an umbrella like they did as well.
Putting it on the ball was pretty tricky I will warn you,lol. I drew stars on the ball and it really added a lot, it definitely needed something.
My version below.
