Learn how to create balloon art with balloon twisting DVDs
Stretch the Balloon Dude has been twisting balloons into fun and creative animals, hats, characters, and other shapes since he picked up his first balloon in 1989. Isolated from other twisters, and with no classes, conventions, or other ways to learn, Stretch developed his own style of twisting balloons through experimentation and the willingness to take on challenges when creating balloon art at birthday parties, restaurants, school carnival, corporate events and more.
In 2005 Stretch was invited to teach at Summer Balloon Camp in Las Vegas. The following year he was invited to be the featured instructor for “T Jam on the Road” hosted by T Myers and sponsored by Betallic in 2006. To go along with his classes for the six week long lecture tour, he produced his first instructional balloon twisting DVD entitled “Latex Lions & Rubber Rabbits.” Since that first release, Stretch has produced a total of 20 balloon twisting DVDs that have been purchased by balloon artists and entertainers around the globe, and are now available for purchase on Amazon.

Educational PDF ebooks
DVDs are a great way to watch videos and learn fun new ways to twist balloons into awesome designs, but they have their drawbacks. You can only watch them on a device with a DVD player like a desktop computer, laptop, or media player that attaches to your television. That’s great when you have the convenience of watching a DVD on one of those devices. But what about when you’re out and about, or perhaps at an event and need to learn or brush up on a balloon twisting design? PDF, or ebooks, are a great alternative to DVDs because you can keep them on your phone or tablet and give them a quick look anywhere you go. Stretch has produced a line of PDF books that cover a wide range of balloon twisting categories, and even has a book on running a balloon business, and another one full of terrible jokes, puns, and other humor. They are all available in his store on Sellfy.com. Some of the books are collections of designs, and there are others that feature a single design.
