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.

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. And now I'm going to show you how to make a horse. To make the horse you blow up a bubble, the balloon leaving about a three inch tail at the end. Now at the end with the nozzle we will make about a three inch bubble. Pinch and twist. Now using two fingers we are going to make a small bubble. Pinch and twist. That looks like this. With this bubble we are going to make a special twist called the ear twist. To do that, you bring that bubble together and you pinch and twist it together giving the first ear of the horse. Now you do the same thing. Make a small bubble. Pinch and twist. Bring it together and pinch and twist. Be very careful as this is sometimes where the balloons like to pop. Be very careful. Giving us the nose and ears of the horse. Now, to do the neck we make the same sized bubble as the nose. Pinch and twist a three inch bubble. Now you are going to make the legs of the horse which is a little longer. Pinch and twist about a four inch bubble. Now you will make a bubble about-exactly the same size actually. The fast way to do that is to bring this right down here and pinch and twist giving us the front legs of the horse. The body will be about the same size as the neck. Pinch and twist a three inch bubble. Now you will make two more four inch bubbles. Pinch and twist. Remember the fast way just bring them together like this. Pinch and twist giving us the back legs. Now this looks a lot like the dog so what we do to add a little more to this is we need another balloon and this balloon can be a contrasting color. You can blow it up about half way it does not matter because we are going to cut off what we don;t need. Pinch and twist small bubbles. Bubble number one, two, three. Again hold it against the side of your body so that they don't come apart. And eight and we will stop there so now it looks like a string of pearls or a bunch of grapes. you bring it together and you are going to take this nozzle end and tie it around so that the air does not escape from the rest of the balloon. So now what we have made could be a bracelet, but what we are going to do instead it to take it and put two of the bubbles here up here on the ears, Insert it right around here, being very careful and gentle with the balloons so it looks like this. Now you are going to take the middle here and twist it around so that it locks up in place and bring this down here and take this extra balloon and wrap it around the neck and legs of the horse. Now we can take that pair of scissors that we just used and cut off the rest of the balloon because we won't need it. That gives us the balloon horse.

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'll show you how to make a flower. To make the flower you blow up a green balloon all the way. You are going to hold the balloon right here and your going to fold the nozzle point to about the half way point of the balloon and then everything here, you'll also bring down like so. Now you're going to pinch and twist the center point here like so. This gives us the first part of the flower. To do the second half, what you're going to need is another balloon. Now you're going to blow up this balloon leaving about a 4 inch tail. What we're going to do is just like the elephant ears we are going to perform a the loop twists. Form a small loop here, pinch and twist. Now to keep that in place, because sometimes it likes to come undone, you bring this nozzle in between the loop like so. That just keeps it in place. Now we're going to make some more loops about the same size. Loop and twist, loop and twist, loop and twist, and one more, using the rest of the balloon here to keep it, the last one in place. Loop and twist and again you can bring this end, bring it through the loop just to keep it in place. Now, it doesn't look like much, but once we get it on the other balloon you, you'll see what I mean. We are going to take this balloon and put it on the end of here. To do that we're going to take our two fingers, make a 1 inch bubble at the tip of the green balloon and we're going to put this right in the folds of the red balloon. To do that you very carefully maneuver the other bubbles around it and you bring the red balloon around that green tip to be the petals of the flower. So it'll look like this. Now to add a little more character to this what you might want to do is we'll fold this part of the stem here and squeeze it, just a little bit, not too tight, we don't want to pop it,and then we bring it up so that it will look like the balloon flower.

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. Now we are going to lock twist the first small bubble and the last bubble you just made and lock twist them together like this. Now we will make the same two small bubbles. Pinch and twist. Pinch and twist and make one more big bubble. Pinch and twist. Now you do that lock twist again. Bring them down and lock them together. Now you are going to do that special twist with this bubble and this bubble. We will do the ear twist. Fold it in half and twist. Now do the same thing with this bubble. Fold it in half and twist. That gives us the ears of the tiger. Now we will make a two inch bubble about the same size as the nose. Pinch and twist and you are going to lock those two together. Fold them up here, take the nozzle, wrap it around. Now you are going to take the nozzle right here and put it inside the space in between these bubbles. That just makes sure that it doesn't come undone. Now you are going to make another two inch bubble. Pinch and twist and you are going to bring this up and around between the two eyes here. Like this and that gives us the head of the tiger. Now we are going to make one more bubble the same size as the nose, about a two and a half inch bubble. Pinch and twist.

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.

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. There are many many ways, you can perform at fairs, at festivals, at private parties, at corporate events. When i first started making balloon animals, i would do magic shows and it was an add-on sale. I would do my magic shows, at the end of the show i would stick around for an extra twenty minutes or a half hour making balloon animals for all the kids, so it was an easy way to break in with that. If you want to find work, you could just be starting out, you could go online, research local fairs, local festivals, you can look at sales flyers, see of anyone is having a grand opening. A lot of time they will want to hire people to attract families, so a balloon artist is definitely in demand so that's a great way to get your foot in the door even just give them a call say " Hey, I make balloon animals, how about i show up and do that." and you are shocked. So that's a great way to do that too and always we should have business cards printed up that has your contact information, that way as you are out there doing it you can hand out card so people can call you afterwards if they are having a party, so definitely if you do a good job you'll get work after it. Another way having a brochure or a flyer, you can have your pictures on there too, you can post them around town or hand those out as well so that's a great way to sell yourself as a balloon artist. I found my first job doing magic shows and what i would do is, i remember the first time when i was called to a magic show, i said " Hey, i also make balloon sculptures." so after the party, after the show i'll make a balloon for all the kids and they were like sure. So it was an easy way to make some extra bucks on the magic show too. The kids really, they bought it and the adults loved it too so it was a great way to get started.
