Who Needs Balloon School?

who love making beautiful art for people? Practically everyone loves balloon sculptures. This is one of the only arts in the world that takes so little time to master and gives so much! If you like making people smile, get Balloon School!

• The Lock - The key to locking two bubbles together so they'll hold position.
• The Loop - A very useful tool because you can make it pretty much any size you want.
• Pin Hole-ing the balloon - Technique to deflate the balloon mid-sculpture, this gives you tremendous control.
