By the way, I found that with a Google search.

That is not my creation. I just posted it to see if that's like what we were talking about.

I'd love to take credit for it but I can't :0)

I keep it simple - I make a machine gun, and I pinch off a small ball and insert it in the balloon as a bullet.
Other kids can get the gun, but only the birthday boy gets the bullet.
I don't specialise in balloons - they are an ad-on at the end, so I don't want to spend too long on them.

Why yes, I am a Café member... (ImNotaclown.com)

Someone in this thread tipped me off that you were talking about me.

The jetpack is a cinch.

1 350
1 260 black (optional)
1 260 silver
1 260 red
1 260 yellow

350 is inflated leaving a 7" tail. two pinch twists, 10" bubble, Pinch twist, 10" bubble, 2 pinch twists. Deflate remaining and use the excess to secure to opposite side double-pinch twists.

The siver is fully inflated and soft. Twist center into top pinch twist, either end goes into respective double pinch twists.

Red and yellow are fully inflated soft, spiraled, split in half and secured to their double pinches. (each flame is only half a red, half a yellow)

You can add an additional 260 runner up between the tanks if you want. If I'm doing line work I typically don't.

A quick, impressive, HUGE sword...

http://www.imnotaclown.com/gallery/BALLOONS%21/100_1670

3 646's
Inflate 2, 2/3 of the way and tie each nozzle to the end, split half and twist around (making two flower petals). Twist the centers of them together so you have a four petal flower.

Inflate remaing 646 all the way, let out a _little_ air (enough to make one twist). Make a single twist about 14" up from nozzle and twist into flower petal.

If you make the petals red/blue and the sword grey, draw hash marks on the red and call it a spiderman sword.

Seanmcd51,

I think you have some of the BEST balloon creations I've seen.

Thank you for sharing the tips on how to do them.

I know this is asking a lot, but if you have any other instructions for any other creations you would be willing to share I know I'm eager to learn and I bet others are too.

I understand that some of these may be signature creations for you and I certainly don't want to ask you for any professional secrets that you'd rather not share.

I guess I should sign this post "I AM a clown" :0)

A lot of my gallery is made up of balloons I've learned from other twisters. If there's something in there you (anyone) would like to learn, message me off list and I'll post instructions here.

By messaging off list it'll save a lot of "that's not my design ..."
