Parrot Balloon Modeling

Step 1: Take the balloon of the size 260 and inflate the balloon, leaving about 3″/ 8 cm uninflated at the end. You will need them to move the air inside the balloon as you twist. Look at the proportions of the model shown on the picture.

Step 2: Make two bubbles of equal size. Make the bubbles, starting from the knotted end, and twist them in one direction by one hand. Hold the bubbles you’ve made in the other hand to prevent them from untwisting.

Step 3: Fold the top bubble downward and twist the bubbles together several times. You’ll have the parrot’s head.

Step 4:

Step 5: Pass the knotted end through the bubbles. You’ll have the parrot's beak.

Step 6:

Step 7: Make two long bubbles of equal size.

Step 8: Fold the top bubbles downward.

Step 9: Twist the long bubbles together several times. You’ll have the wings.

Step 10: Make one bubble for the body of the same length as the wings.

Step 11: Fold the bottom bubble upward.

Step 12: Pass the body’s bubble through the wings’ bubbles.

Step 13: Turn the parrot’s head 180 degrees.

Step 14:

Step 15: Make two round bubbles.

Step 16: Fold the bottom bubble over.

Step 17: Twist the round bubbles together several times. You’ll have the parrot’s legs. Turn the parrot’s head 90 degrees to the left.

Step 18: Draw some eyes and mark the feathers with a marker, and the parrot is complete.
