Hi Lori and everyone else who asked,

In addition to the comments below, please see my answer to a similar question about balloon numbers, including a short video showing some of the basics for creating numbers and letters with clusters of balloons.

Big thanks to Sean O'Kelly from Australia who has offered to send his instruction sheet on how to make the frame for all numbers. If you are interested, please contact Sean via email at sean@balloondecor.com.au.

Margit

 Rating Balloon Size for 6 foot tall Number 1 Balloon Sculpture by: Margit Hi Lex,Regarding your question..."What size balloons and how many balloons would be needed for a 6 foot tall number 1 balloon sculpture."I would suggest to use 9 inch balloons. The number 1 has a more rectangular shape, so it's fine to go with the slightly larger balloons. If you were making other numbers, like the number 5 or 6, it would be better to use 5 inch balloons.To estimate the number of balloons you can use the balloon arch formula. For a 4 cluster arch (or column) with 9 inch balloons you need 8 balloons per foot.When you calculate the number, don't forget to add the length of the base and the extension at the top to form the number 1.Here's a nice image of a number 1 balloon sculpture (even with polka dots, like your design)...http://www.celebrateitballoons.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Number-1-Polka-Dot.jpgHope that helps!
