What are some common balloon sculptures with these color? I already make both the mermaid and surfer from mark's first dvd, and ive gotten great reactions out of them, kids and parents alike. they just love it, it seems like when you make something that is not an animal people just think you're the best balloon artist ever.

Ballerina... take Mark's Mermaid ( I always have quite a bit of balloon left so I trim it and attach the mermaid body onto the tail) BUT this time don't trim it but double the balloon over to make legs, then use a six petal flower twist to make a tutu... bada bing.

I commonly use blush for monkeys ( as in Mark's tree climbing monkey hat) or Don Caldwell's monkey ( with more time/ motivation).

My top two most used colors are Blush and Red!!!

Followed by black, white, green, mocha and brown.

Use blush for the tan part of dogs, the under belly of a dinosaur, Stripper on a pole, and as the accent color on my white tiger.

I tend to do a lot of mermaids, dinosaurs T-Rex and I make a lot of people balloons too. Lootles, characters, wrestlers.

Don't be afraid to make ethnic balloons too ..... often I'll ask a child if they want their mermaid to look like them or ariel.

On a side note I make my monkeys blush because of an incident I had in one of my restaurants. It seemed a table thought I was racist for making a brown monkey. So ever since I only make monkeys up trees in blush.

My funky monkey is multi-colored so I use blush and brown to make it.

Oh I didn't see your post mark, thanks, yeah I think blush colored balloons give it a nice touch,never made a blush monkey though, I still haven't bought the rest of the DVD series so I haven't seen the monkey or trex, its on my wishlist,I'll order from your website I promise.

I'm gonna be using blush a lot more, I also like clear balloons I don't know why.

I'm excited to go work tomorrow, I got my balloon apron on the mail a couple days ago, can't wait to break it in.

I assumed you went silver for your pole mark, or grey. I have never seen one up close so I had no idea they were that color.
