Help. I am twisting at a fund raiser "Rubber Duckie Race" on the 4th of July and would love to learn a quick and easy duck. Any instructions appreciated.

Measure intended head. Make a 1" bubble joint and then a ear twist. [Like a indian hat]

Force air into stick to soften. Make a 4"-6" loop with a 1" bubble at the end.

Blow up 6"-8" of Orange balloon .... tie ends together trim excess balloon

twist off 2" on tied ends, pull thru loop and you should have 2 large ear twists.

Here is a link to a duck by Ralph Dewey:

http://balloonhq.com/column/dewey/jul06/

I have twisted at this event here in Connecticut. A lot of fun.

There is also a quick duck using a yellow 6" heart (twist a bubble [for the head] from one of the lobes) and an orange 160 for the bill/cheeks. I thought there was a picture of it somewhere, but I couldn't find it.

Bad's duck is the best. I'm looking forward to BTB2. For another option, the third Italian Palloncini book, Palloncini da Sogno (Dream Balloons) By Gabriella Michelotto has an awesome duck hat that kids love. I know T. Myers sells the book. Larocks may also. Quick and easy to make...I can whip one out in about 30 seconds (I'm getting older, give me a break! Smile). It's big, very colorful and it's a hat!

Thanks again to everyone. Used a little bit of all the duck ideas and kept coming up with a different duck every time. Now I am tired after eight hours of twisting mc'ing and magicing. Great event. And it keeps getting better every year.

Mark...please come the part of paradise that I call home anytime.

Must eat....
Must sleep....
