The Pinch Twist or Ear Twist is a great technique to use when twisting modeling balloons to make knees, ankles, elbows, etc. or to incorporate into round balloon decor.
• Inflate a 260, leaving half un-inflated.
• Measure 6″ and make a twist.
• Then measure 1″ and make a second twist.
Bring both sides of the 260 down so they are butting up against each other with the 1” bubble sitting on top.
Grasp both balloons underneath the bubble with your left hand and place the 1” bubble into the palm of your right hand.
Pull the bubble up and twist the two sides of the bubble together three times to finish.
