Air Sculpture: Transforming Balloons into Art

Janice's Award Winning "Little Miss Muffet" sculpture

3rd Place; Small Artistic Balloon Sculpture; Twist & Shout; Rochester, NY;February 5-9, 2014
Using a combination of inflated and uninflated latex balloons, Janice Spagnola created "Little Miss Muffet" for the national balloon convention "Twist & Shout".

About the Piece

Janice used various techniques to complete this one of a kind sculpture. For example, the head was accomplished using two different color round balloons (one inside the other), creating an uneven tone when stretched. The round balloon shape was then distorted by inflating a number of balloons inside the uninflated (double stuffed) round balloon. The details on the face were achieved by using the rolled nozzels of various sized balloons.

Little Miss Muffet's dress was a long time in the making, as Janice explored innovative techniques to create balloon cloth. To accomplish this, balloons were inflated and twisted into a dress. The dress was then stuffed to keep its shape, and allowed to slowly deflate, unstuffing gradually as it shrunk. Finally, the dress was frozen to give it a more cloth-like appearance.
