New York has always been a center of Balloon history! Way back in 1830, thirty-thousand spectators gathered in New York to watch Charles Durant take off in a balloon from Castle Garden and fly for thirty miles! Then in 1833 he floated across New York's East River toward Jamaica, Queens in his balloon. He landed at the Union Race Course, only forty yards from his lift-off - but he became known as "the first person to set foot on Long Island from the air!"
Here are few beginning "twists" used for making balloon sculptures and animals! Enjoy!
Basic Balloon Twist
Take the balloon with with two fingers on each hand and pinch the balloon and twist your hands in opposite directions! Dont let go too soon, or your balloon will un-twist itself!
The Lock Twist
First take the ends of 2 simple twists and pull them together to form 2 side by side tubes (connected at the top.) Then spin the pair of tists several times to lock them together at the bottom!
The Pinch Twist
First pinch a small bubble in the middle of a long slender balloon. Then pull the bubble out from the main "tube" and twist to lock it in place!
