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 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.
