Hi guys & guyess's
Can any one please help? I am an intermediate balloon moddeller, I am wanting to do different balloons than most in my area. You know dog, flower, sword etc. I have Mark Byrne's DVD's, The Balloon School DVD by Joe Montella. Great DVD's, but know that I have been doing hats (Thanks to mark's DVD's) I want to get more into doing hats. I have been told by another balloonist about Don Cauldwell (I like what he does) but I think with all the different types of balloons he uses would prove to be expensive for me (something to aspire to though as I love what he does) So can anyone recommend some DVD's please.

I also need help with knowing what to do, say etc while I'm standing there making them instead of being a prized lemon. I learn by watching/listening. I have been on tmyers.com but I just don't know which one to go for as money is tight. Norm Barnhart sort of interests me. Has anyone whatched it? Are there any more? I need help aaaggghhh.

Please xcuse any misspeelongs.

Thanks for any help offered.

Why did the chicken cross the internet?.......................To get to the other site!!!

Sorry folks not much been going on here lately been busy at BHQ.

Top things keeping me from producing Bad to the Balloon #3:

1) I went to China.

2) Busy defending creativity and marketing of Balloon Dresses from Shanghia

3) Been to too many Conventions this year. Diamond Jam, Twist & Shout this is the 3rd month right?

4) Doing an Art installation for an Elementary school $18,000 project

5) Teaching at World Clown Convention in Disney World April 13- 16th http://worldclown.com/conv.html

6) Talking to people all over the world and southern Californian. Looking to set up a European tour this year. England, Scotland, France anyone I am missing? I lecture on magic and balloons.

7) Busy losing weight ... lost 40 lbs within the 3 months.

8) Going to diamond Jam 2008.5

9) Want to go to FLOAT, Millennium Jam, Twist & Shout

Number one reason Bad to the Balloon Number 3 is not ready ........... I still have 500 of Bad to the Balloon #1

Sooooo tell your friends, clowns, magicians and any one into latex Buy Bad to the balloon #1 & #2 Quicker I sell these puppies then I am off to my next project!!!

Mark,

So, on point #6 of why Bad to The Balloon 3 is not ready, is there a reason that you separate Southern Cal from the rest of the world? As a SoCal boy, I am wondering if it's a good thing or a bad thing that you set us apart from the rest of the world.

Just a hop, skip, and a short jump from Cerritos,

SHeesh! What do you need to do in the otehr 3 hours of the day ------ sleep?????

I cant wait to meet up with you! PLEASE you got to get over here to do the tour.

I have started frequenting a magic club - I will talk to them about doing a lecture next year if you want. .....ill certainly pass on your details to the organiser person - oh and the president of the group is a baloon man! - n really he has to be re-inflated every few days (well certianly looks like it Smile )

As a general recommendation, I really like all of Ralph Dewey's DVDs. He mainly uses 260s and hearts and all of his stuff is really well done and easy to learn but has a big impact. I know he has a few DVDs available that are all very good.

Patricia does hats which can also be used for bracelets. They feature cartoonish faces, (VERY cute), with lots and lots of character. One basic shape with additions to give each one individuality. Good for the intermediate twister who can already make the simple one balloon figures. For beginners, I like Captain Visual's Big Book of Balloon Art. That will take you from beginner to intermediate twister. If you google Patricia Bunnell you will probably come up with some photos of her work.
I suggest that you go onto some of the balloon forums and read the revues of the various DVDs. They also have photos on them and well as instructions.

Ye of course, I've just realised I can get them at Tmyers. I'm too impatient, as I've ordered 2 of Mr Caldwells DVD's Tie Blow Workout & Blow Hard. What are these like? Anybody?

Complete rubbish. I wouldn't even use Caldwell's DVDs as drink coasters. I have tried to watch them and they contain nothing that I have not seen a hundred times before. Although, I must say that of all of them, his Mad Hatz & Wild Wearables is the most tolerable.

You're going to very pleased with Don's DVDs. Great choice!
By the way, T. Meyers has always tried to be honest in his revues of the DVDs he sells. If he says they're good ..... they're good. You can also call them and ask about specific DVDs and also get an honest opinion.
Very funny Buster ...... you're going to stir up a hornets nest.
