Calla Lily Balloon Flower Lesson

Posted on

Hello.

A couple weeks ago a YouTube user skj8100 asked me for any tips how to make specific flowers orchid, lily.

I think my first answer was a bit confusing.

So, today we are going to make slightly different sculpture.

Inflate balloon leaving about two inch flat tail.

And twist a chain of the first two about seven inch bubbles.

Lock both ends of the chain of the first two bubbles in one lock twist.

Twist the third about eight inch bubble.

Twist the fourth soft about one inch bubble.

Lock both ends of the fourth bubbles in one lock twist.

The fourth bubble is the top of the flower or the top of the blossom.

Twist the fifth about eight inch bubble.

Lock both ends of the chain of the last three bubbles in one lock twist.

The rest of the balloon is the sixth bubble.

Now, let's lock the fourth bubble between the first and the second bubble.

We have to force the fourth bubble through the loop of the first and the second bubbles.

So, as you can see we are going to use six bubbles to make the blossom.

Now we just have to connect the end of the balloon or the free end of the sixth bubble with the fourth bubble, the top of the flower.

The size of the sixth bubble should be about.

well, no more than ten inch.

But first let's attach blossom to the stem.

Inflate green balloon leaving about one inch flat tail.

And tie the nozzle of the green balloon at the base of the blossom, between the sixth white bubble and the other white bubbles.

Lock the free end of the sixth white bubble with the fourth white bubble.

Again, if the sixth bubble is too long, then you have to twist it.

Make it shorter.

It should be one or two inch longer than the third or the fifth white bubbles.

Let's bend the sixth white bubble in a shape of letter S.

We have to force the sixth bubble through the loop of white bubbles.

So the letter S or sixth bubble goes through the middle of the blossom.

The front view of the blossom is where the third and the fifth white bubbles.

Take yellow balloon.

Fill it with air without making any bubbles.

Tie a knot in a middle of the balloon.

And cut off the rest of the yellow balloon.

Attach this yellow balloon at the base of the flower.

Fix the yellow balloon between white bubbles.

OK.

We have made the blossom.

Now we are going to make the stem with a leaf.

Twist the first green about five, six inch bubble.

Fold the green balloon in a half and twist second about twenty inch bubble.

Lock both ends of the second green bubble in one lock twist.

We have made the stem with leaf.

And now we can bend the second bubble to shape the leaf in whatever shape you want to make.

Pinch the bubble.

Pull it.

Bend it.

Do whatever it takes to shape it properly.

Alright, it should be enough.

Now we force the first green bubble with a white balloon, with the blossom, inside of the loop of the second green bubble.

Fix all bubbles in proper positions.

Congratulations, we have made the flower.

I think it resembles the calla lily flower.

Flowers always looks better in bouquets.

I believe so.

You probably want to make more than one flower.

Have fun and happy twisting 🙂 Subtitles by the Amara.
