Hi there,

Looking into getting into baloon twisting and animals. Can you folks recommend a few basic DVD's or other not to terribly expensive "starter kits"

Thanks so much

Get some balloons and a pump.

The only thing you need to buy is Bad to the Balloon DVD 1 (to begin with).

Also check out you tube as there are lots of tutorials for free to get you going.

Spend you money on more balloons.

Also check if there is a Jam in your area and go play and learn.

Danny

I look through my recent records ... I guess you didn't order it directly from me?

No Scotts in recent purchases, whom did you get it from and did you order #1 or #2?

BTW Bad to the Balloon Series is one of the least expensive DVD series out there. Gobble them up before I come to my senses and up the price...

Also, hit your local library for ballooning books, and your local clown club for practice.

My bad Mark,

Apparently my Pay Pal transaction didn't go through. You should see a Scott in your order list now Smile! Can't wait to see the video. I always try to support the local artist when ever possible. I know you make more if I buy directly from you vs a vendor out there.

If you want to support Mark, get these from him.

Here are links to my site if you want to save a couple of bucks. (But you should support Mark)

Mark yes you do have to buy Don's DVD's, BUT you don't have to watch them.

Don has a wife, a child and a large marketing machine to support!

I have BOTH Mark's and Don's DVDs. I don't consider Mark's DVD's as completely 101 level as he does teach some advanced techniques. Don teaches some pretty easy stuff on some of his DVDs as well, so it goes both ways as far as I am concerned. I am sure both of the great artists would recommend getting as much information as possible through DVD's, books, CDs, and conventions and jams if you want to grow as a balloon artist.

No apologies necessary!! I was just joshing about the "101" thing. No harm no foul!

Mum says thanks!!
