When I go to make the balloon anchor, what size balloons do I use for the anchor and what size are the link balloons? Where can I get them in the US?


ANSWER

Hi Patti,

Glad to hear that you like the balloon anchor sculpture. You are referring to the video shown on this page, right?

The anchor is made of 5 inch round latex balloons, blown up to 3 inches. The balloons used for the chain are twisting balloons. I think they are either 260Q or 350Q - they look thicker than the 160Q type.

You can get them at Amazon.

Here's an example for a pack of 100 dark blue 5 inch balloons from Qualatex.

And here are the 260Q balloons, in white, also from Qualatex.

Hope that helps!

Best,
Margit

Place to buy balloons NEW

You can buy Qualatex balloons from a company. In the US called Balloons.Everywhere, their website is ballooons.com
They are great and you do not have to have a sellers permit to buy from them. Qualatex balloons are the best.
