I was wondering if there was any DVD to learn Chistmas balloon sculptures? Hayts and sich like?

Thanks

Mike

Don Caldwell has one. They are only sold at certain times though. When I purchased it I had to buy it with a package deal at Diamond Storm. You may want to contact Ed and see if he has anything planned with it.

I also believe that Everything But The Toes has some holiday themed sculptures. I would have to check the archive to verify it though.

Of course balloon magic magazine has a few Christmas additions

Ryan what is on Don's DVD, it seems to be a big mystery.

Thanks,

It has been a few months since I watched it (i guess I should soon) so this is what the back cover says:
Snowman Bracelet, Snowman Hat, Elf Hat, Ride Inside Reindeer, Santa Clause Hat, Christmas Tree Costume, Gingerbread House Hat, and quick and simple holiday balloons.

A couple of them are real winners.

I guess what I said above should have been editions not additions. that's why I have someone proof all my marketing material.

Other Dvds also have one or two winter themed items.

One more thing. I watched Everything but the toes today while booking christmas shows and it has a santa head bracelet and a reindeer ring. I believe that is the only holiday themed balloons. It isn't the easiest DVD to go through quickly so there is a small chance I missed something.

Not that I would ever steer one away from one of Don's DVDs, but the Christmas issues of Balloon Magic that I have seen are really packed. 3 or 4 back issues would be well worth your money. T Myers site has them and there are good descriptions of back issues.

Rev, are there any issues you would recommend that have designs that look good and take less than 5 minutes to make?

Thanks!

I would like input on the back issues as well. The magazines if there are good instructions would be a good investment.

Candy canes are easy.

blow up one red one white 260/160 and just spiral and connect.to shape it (you will end up with a stick) curve the top a bit and you got a candy cane.

Same thing with a wreath just change colors connect the spiral together.(i use dark green and lime green) then add a red bow where the spiral connects to make a spiral circle and you have a wreath.

These were shown to me yesterday at our balloon jam by Albert Tester not sure who originated them though.

Edit: look around at local balloon whole sellers Ive found Balloon magic issues for cheaper than 7 from them.Also I have found 2 at our local used book/music/magazine store.
