413nth and 414nth Balloon Sculptures, Mario and Number 5


My friend Tatyana DjeTa Lyashko has a terrific tutorial for a Mario and Pipe themed number 5.

I really love and prefer the round balloons for making balloon numbers. Tatyana is one of the best when it comes to making balloon numbers and she will be a huge influence in how I go about making them.

I made just a few modifications. I played around a little bit and tried out adding an extra balloon to the mushroom, I changed the balloon you use for the bottom just to try it out and I turned it into a a 1 UP mushroom rather than a yellow one. I made Mario’s overalls dark blue. I also made it so he is holding a wrench as well.

Below is my replication of her design.
