Balloon walls are a great way to practise clustering, tying and twisting before you get into free form structures like garlands. The trick here is to have many highly detailed 3-6” clusters to create the dimension in the wall. You can do a sporadic pattern - or a colour block pattern like I chose to do in the video. Don’t get intimidated at the half way point if it has a lot of holes or is lopsided. This is how mine looks and how everyone‘s looks when they‘re below 80% to completion :) keep creating visual depth with proper cluster placement and you’ll get there by training your eye!
This is a longer one but worth the watch. If you have a structure that you already have in mind to attach your garland to - then note the different points in the body of the garland that you would have to attach to - to keep the tension for your shape to look correct. This one is all about shaping and balance. Each prop you style with balloons depending on the size, and colour, will have its own distinct look depending on how you position the balloons around it. Our job is the accentuate the prop with the beauty of our balloons.
This is definitely a ‘leave nothing on the table’ kind of garland. We have double stuffed balloons, Orbz, Bobo bubbles, pampas & florals, and cutout butterflies! It’s gorgeous and something for the extravagant client. You’ll see how to work with a moving garland rigged to the ceiling, and how double tying is a proven method for keeping shape and stability in the wobbliest of massive garland scenarios. I highly recommend everyone at least make one rendition of a fancy garland for their portfolio - as you may but inspire a look!
