6th February - Flamingo

I have been making balloons for about 18 or 19 years now (not constantly, I did stop for dinner) and about once a year I get asked to make a Flamingo, I usually manage to make something that sort of resembles a tall bird thing with a beak. Anyway, the time has come to work out how to make a flamingo look like . .well a flamingo.

So, this one is made up of 6 balloons, and in the order I made this, first a black 260 balloon for the beak, then a pink one for the neck and head, here I added in a small white bit for the eyes, now i used 2 pink 260s for the body and then added the black one in for the leg. As I had never made him before he took me about 15-20 minutes to make.
