Balloon Sword

Entertain the little ones (or not-so-little-ones) with this balloon twisting sword tutorial! I included bloopers in the end: hey, nobody’s perfect! 🙂 I especially like this sword because of the cool looking handle. I like how it’s not the “traditional T-handle” (hopefully, you know what type of handle I’m referring to). The tiny bubble-twists (yes, I call them bubble-twists!) give the sword an extra “oomph” and make them more fun, all around.

Sometimes, I do have trouble making those little bubbles, though. It tends to have a mind of its own, and because there’s so many of them, my small hands can’t quite grip onto them all at once, HAHA. If that’s the case for you, too, you can just make fewer bubbles. Problem solved. 😉 It’s also hard to film these balloon tutorials because I don’t want to be covering the bubbles with my hand during demonstration. It’s really awkward, and mirror-image of the articulated screen on the Canon HF R400 doesn’t help. I suppose I can turn off the mirror-image (I think), but I’ll just adjust. Like I said, I don’t do many balloon tutorials, so it isn’t too much of a problem.
