Hi, I'm Jonas Cain and I'm here at the Veritas Theatre at the beautiful Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts. I am a magician and a balloon sculptor having performed and provided entertainment solutions for many, many years. Visit my website at www.jonascain.com. And today I'm going to be talking about making balloon animals. Now i am going to show you how to make a duck. To make the duck, you blow up the duck leaving up about three inch tail at the end. The tail with a nozzle would make a three inch twist. Measure and pinch, and twist, lock it in place. Now we are going to make a bubble little more than double that size so you can hold it against your body to measure. Three,six, maybe about a seven inch bubble and pinch and twist so it looks like this. Now you are going to do, make a same size bubble. A fast way to do that is to spring it down like this, and pinch and twist, so you have made the same size bubble and locked it in place. Now we would make a bubble about that same size again, pinch and twist, now we would bring this bubble inside of this bubble here, this space in between . To do that you bring it up and pinch them together and bring it through the other side very carefully. So now your balloon will look like this. Now you are going to make a neck about the same size as this little tail. About a three inch bubble, you pinch and twist, and pinch and twist. Now we are going to do the long twist. You take these two bubble here, bring them together, lock them together, twisting them enough time so they stay in place. Now you reposition the neck up here and we get our balloon duck.

Hi, I'm Jonas Cain, and I'm here at the Veritas Theater at the beautiful Elms College in Chickapea, Massachusetts. I am a magician and a balloon sculptor, having performed and provided entertainment solutions for many, many years. Visit my website at www.jonascain.com. And today, I'm going to be talking about making balloon animals. I'm going to show you how to make a swan. To make the swan you blow up the balloon leaving about a four inch tail at the end. At the end with the nozzle you'll make a three inch bubble, pinch and twist. Hold that in place. Now I'm going to make a bubble about double that size. So you can hold it against your body, measure a three inch bubble and a six inch, pinch and twist. Now you're going to make a bubble the exact same size, and a quick way to do that is to bring them together like this, pinch and twist where it meets. So now you've made the same size bubble and locked it in place. Now I'm going to make another bubble about that same size, pinch and twist. Now you're going to bring this bubble inside the space in between. To do that, very carefully bring it up and insert it here, and push it through very carefully. And that gives us the tail and the body of the swan. Now to make the head, this is kind of fun. You're going to take this tail part of the balloon and bring it down here. You're going to hold it in place with your thumb right here. Now you're going to squeeze gently. And when you do that, watch what happens. Re-position the head. That gives us the neck and the head of the balloon swan. ...And do the ear twist... Sometimes they pop! Let's try that again.

And now you do another two inch bubble, again holding it against the side of your body so they don't come apart. Pinch and twist so it looks like this.

I am a magician and a balloon sculptor having performed and provided entertainment solutions for many, many years. Visit my website at www.jonascain.com. And today I'm going to be talking about making balloon animals. I'm going to show you how to make a giraffe. To do that, you blow up a balloon, leaving about a three inch tail at the end. Now the tail with the nozzle, you're going to make a three inch bubble. Wrap your hand around, pinch, and twist. Hold it in place, and you're going to pinch and twist two smaller bubbles, just a little smaller, maybe about two and a half inches. And pinch and twist, like so. Now you're going to pinch and twist another bubble about the size, so it looks like this. Now we'll do the lock twist. You take these two bubbles here, bring them together, and lock them together and twist enough so they don't come apart. This is the head of the giraffe. Now the giraffe has a long neck, so you come about maybe in the middle, and you're going to twist the bubbles about the same size as the ears. And you pinch and twist. Now we're going to make the legs. Pinch and twist about the same size as the ears. We're going to pinch and twist another one. Now we're going to do the lock twist. Take these two bubbles here, bring them together, lock them together, like so. That gives us the legs of the giraffe. To do the body you make a bubble about the same size as the nose, pinch and twist. Now you're going to make two more bubbles about the same size as the front legs, pinch and twist. And one more, pinch and twist. Again, holding against your body so the balloons don't come apart, the bubbles don't come apart. Now I want to take these two bubbles and do the lock twist, bring them together, pinch and lock. And that's how you get the giraffe. What's nice about the giraffe is that by just changing the position of some of the bubbles, you get another balloon. You take the tail and the back legs, turn them upside down. And if you take the head and the ears, you turn them the other way, and you bring the whole balloon down here--and you get, a wiener dog!

Hi, I'm Jonas Cain and I'm here at the Veritas Theatre at the beautiful Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts. I am a magician and a balloon sculptor having performed and provided entertainment solutions for many, many years. Visit my website at www.jonascain.com. And today I'm going to be talking about making balloon animals. I'm going to show you how to make an elephant. To make an elephant, you'll blow up the balloon, leaving about a two and a half or two inch tail at the end. Now first we're going to make the nose or the trunk. To do that, you're going to make about twice the nose as the nose of the dog. So you measure here and here, pinch and lock twist here. Now you're going to make the ears. To do that we're going to do a loop twist. It's going to be about the size of the trunk, but instead of the ears like the dog, what you're going to do is twist it here so it looks like this. Now you're going to twist it together to give us the first ear, twist it enough so it doesn't come apart. Now you're going to do the same thing, twist like so. Again, twisting enough to make sure it doesn't come apart. This gives us the trunk and the ears of the elephant. Now we're going to make the neck. The neck we're going to make nice and small. You can use about two finger, pinch and twist a bubble like so. Now the legs are going to be smaller, maybe about a two inch bubble. One, hold it against your body to keep it in place. And two. Now we'll do the lock twist. Take these two bubbles, bring them together, and lock them together, twisting enough so they don't come apart. Now the body, about a three inch bubble. Now you're going to do two, two inch bubbles. One. Again, holding them in place. And two. Now you're going to take these two bubbles, bring them together, lock and twist. And that gives us the tail, the legs, the body, and the ears and the trunk of the elephant. Now to get a little more creative with this what you can do is just fold the trunk in half and just give it a little squeeze. But not too much, we don't want to break the balloon. That gives the trunk a little bit of a curve, to add a little more character to your elephant.

Hi, I'm Jonas Cain and I'm here at the Veritas Theatre at the beautiful Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts. I am a magician and a balloon sculptor having performed and provided entertainment solutions for many, many years. Visit my website at www.jonascain.com. And today I'm going to be talking about making balloon animals. Now, I'll show you how to make the balloon bear. To do the bear you blow it up leaving about a three inch tail at the end. The end with the nozzle you'll make a one inch bubble, pinch and twist, then about a two inch bubble pinch and twist. Now hold that in place against your body. And you're going to make another, about a three inch bubble, pinch and twist, now you'll make a one inch bubble pinch and twist, a two inch bubble pinch and twist another one inch bubble pinch and twist and lastly another three inch bubble, pinch and twist. From here, we've done a lot of work, but we need to take this third bubble, not one, two but three and the last one and come down and lock it together. Now, it's okay if this one inch bubble goes away for a moment we can remake that in a moment. We'll do the lock twist. Now with the small bubble, the two small bubbles here, we'll do the ear twist. Fold it in half, pinch and twist carefully. Do the same thing with the other one fold it in half, pinch and twist. Now we'll reform that one inch bubble that we lost a moment ago, make sure is stays, and bring that end through these two balloons here, up and around, and this gives us the head of the bear. Now for the body you want to make a neck. We do about another one inch bubble. Make a three inch bubble for the first leg, make the same thing, fold it in half, and lock twist. Make a two inch bubble for the body, make another three inch body, fold it in half, right here, pinch and twist, giving us our balloon bear.

Hi, I'm Jonas Cain and I'm here at the Veritas Theatre at the beautiful Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts. I am a magician and a balloon sculptor having performed and provided entertainment solutions for many, many years. Visit my website at www.jonascain.com. And today I'm going to be talking about making balloon animals. Now I'll show you how to make a fish. To make the fish you're going to blow up the balloon all the way up until the end. And now you'll fold the balloon in half like this and you're going to make a three inch bubble on both ends of the balloon. At the same time you pinch and twist several times so they don't come apart. Now this makes the very basic fish. Now to make it more advanced what we can do is add another balloon. And to do this we're going to make two small bubbles. Using two fingers, you pinch and twist, and you're going to do the ear twist. You bring that, fold that bubble in half and you twist it together upon itself. So now, it looks like this. You do the same size bubble again. Pinch and twist. It'll do the ear twist again, on this bubble, fold it in half and twist it together. Now the rest of the balloon we don't need so we'll cut the rest of it away with the scissors. And now, we're going to tie it together so that the rest of the balloon doesn't lose its air. We're going to take this balloon and insert it onto this balloon. Very carefully put it on right about here, and with the rest of the white balloon we're not going to need it now. So, using the scissors we can cut it away and that gives us our balloon fish.
