How do you inflate and twist animal balloon sculptures?
You will need to use a double action hand pump to inflate 260 balloons. We recommend the Qualatex Double Action Pump for inflating these balloons because they have a large opening, perfect for inflating these balloons. Before inflating, give your balloon a quick stretch and then carefully insert the tip of the pump into the hole and pull the rim of the balloon up the nozzle so that it doesn't slip off. Pinch the nozzle, securing the balloon to the pump and pump up the balloon. Carefully pull off the tip and tie a knot. Do not inflate your balloons too tightly or they will easily pop. Instead "burp" your balloon a little so that it is the right length for tying and twisting your creation. If you plan on making a lot of twist you will need to release a lot more air from your balloon. There are tons of instructional videos on Youtube that you can watch and learn to makes all sorts of cool balloon creations!
