Answer to "Reunion Help"
by: Margit

You asked...

"want to make a 10 for my class reunion. what is the best thing to use. I was told pcp pipe."

I am assuming that you plan to make a large, free standing number 10 sculpture, right?

Then I would recommend to use either 1/2" aluminium rod or 1/2" conduit (PVC pipe).

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)...

Hope that helps!
