Learn Balloon Twisting From Scratch
Here you have free access to some of my older as well as more recent tutorials on balloon modeling. These are the videos featured on my YouTube channel.
If you are a total beginner, my best counsel for you would be... start from the beginning and... do not skip the balloon technique series. Those may be a little less fun than the others, yet they are the very ones that will help you to progress further in the end.
I believe this video series should enable you to engage in this fun activity, and to progress rapidly while building a veritable technical and artistic mastery.
