538th Balloon Sculpture, Willy Wonka

Standard

I wanted to stretch myself some and so I did some balloon face distortion and came up with this Willy Wonka as a result. I was humming the song he sings about imagination…

“Come with me and you’ll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you’ll see
Into your imagination”

….and this is where my imagination took me as result.

I love Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka. I love his Mad Hatter like eccentric quality and the whimsical charm.

Boy it sure was hot and humid when I constructed him, and when I took pictures of him the balloons became chalky immediately. He didn’t withstand the weather well so I wasn’t able to give him away unfortunately.

537th Balloon Sculpture, Raccoon in a Stump Bouquet

Standard

 

I came up with this raccoon bouquet today and am super proud of it.

I am going to randomly give it out to someone today. 🙂

It is “popping” out of a stump and attempting to win someone over with a rose.

Hope you like it and that it brings some joy in your day!

536th Balloon Sculpture, Peacock and Callas Lily Bouquet

Standard

I have always wanted to make a peacock. I made the tail feathers differently than anyone else has, at least to my knowledge, and also made the tail feathers folded down also to be different. I also figured out how to make Callas Lily’s in a different way. I made this piece for myself to enjoy and also for my guests to enjoy.

I feel like I am on the verge of something with the wing design I am playing around with. I need to play around with it some more but I have some ideas I want to implement and came across something interesting when making the wing for this.

Hope you like it and that it brings you some joy!

535th Balloon Sculpture, Tigger’s Got A Brand New Head

Standard

I made a brand new head as when I drove it to work to give and surprise my boss with it, the hot car ride was very unkind to the head. She still loved it but I wanted it to be perfect for her.

This time I secured things much more solidly and did head replacement surgery. I think the second head looks more Tiggerific than the first one!

What do you think, which head do you like better, see previous post, 534th Balloon Sculpture for 1st rendition to compare.
