Balloon Column with Masquerade Mask

Balloon Column with Masquerade Mask

I have made a balloon column and I want to top it with a masquerade mask which I have made out of 2 curved and 2 crescent foil balloons (air filled).


Can you suggest a way of securing the mask to the column? I've tried sticking the mask to a balloon stick and stuck it in the pole with blu tac but it seems a bit precarious.

I would appreciate some help.

ANSWER

Hi Karen,

How did you secure the 4 foil balloons to each other to form the mask?

Typically, the best way to secure a large topper balloon to a column is by using an uninflated 260Q balloon. I've described the technique (including a video) on this page.

I am not sure though if this will work for you. It depends on how stable the masquerade balloon unit is.

Best,
Margit

Size of the foil balloons
by: Margit

Hi TaShana,

I would suggest to use a 42 inch curved balloon and a 26 inch crescent balloon for the mask.

Alternatively, if you want to have a smaller mask, you could try the 28 inch curved and the 17 inch crescent balloon.
