Spiral arch with 3 colors and balloon kit

by April
(Ct)

Can someone give me some direction on how to assemble the spiral arch. I got the basic concept of the lighter colored balloons (white) across from one another and the darker two (red and grey) facing each other.


The bottom of the column doesn't seem complicated however stringing on the other balloons I'm nervous that the pattern won't match throughout the design.

Any suggestions?

PS REMEMBER I HAVE A ARCH KIT

Thanks in advance 😄🎈

ANSWER:

Hi April,

To create an arch with 3 colors and the spiraling effect, you would combine a duplet of your two white balloons and a duplet with one red and one grey balloon into a 4 balloon cluster.

Then you keep rotating each subsequent cluster of balloons clockwise for about half a balloon, so that the balloons of the second cluster fit into the gaps between the balloons of the first cluster, as I've explained on our page about spiral balloon arches.

Remember to rotate the balloon clusters always in the same direction. Otherwise you break the spiral pattern.

The video below does a good job in demonstrating how this works (the voice-over is in Portuguese though):



Good luck with assembling your balloon kit. Would love to see a photo of your arch. Feel free to post it to my "Photo Gallery" or my Facebook Page.
