Balloon Bases for Stuffed Balloons
Stuffed Balloon - Example #1
I see some balloons that have some sort of decoration around the base. Some of them are laced and some look like a shirt or rug. What are they called and where can I find them. The pictures below are some examples. Also I would like to know what to use and how to wrap the circular balloon around the balloon saucer. A picture depicting this is attached.ANSWER:
When you talk about balloon bases, you mean the bases for stuffed balloons, as you show in your images, right?
I am going to split my answer based on the 3 examples...
The base of this stuffed balloon looks like it's a plastic balloon tray, filled with krinkle shreds. You can see (and purchase) these materials for example at the Gift in a Balloon
The base on this balloon looks like a feather boa, similar to what we used in our Marabou Balloon Heart
It should be fine to simply arrange the feather boa string in a circle below the stuffed balloon. Or you could glue it to a circle-shaped styrofoam board.
The balloon used for the base is most likely a 160 modelling balloon (1 inch wide, 60 inches long). I am no expert in balloon twisting, so I don't know what kind of twist you'd need to create the round shape and keep it in place.
A good source for balloon twisting instructions, with lots of videos is this site...http://balloon-animals.com/
Good luck with your balloon stuffing!
