RouseABOUT™ Your Success newsletter cover with 6 famous faces MadeWithBalloons™

JUST FACE IT With Balloons!

People like to see their own faces, probably almost as much as they like to hear their own names.

People also like to see the faces of others with whom they identify or who represent their aspirations or who call up emotions they want refreshed.

As balloon artists we can produce graphics MadeWithBalloons™ that portray those faces. We can speak to their identities. We can focus attention on their aspirations. And, we can call up emotions our customers want refreshed in themselves and in their audiences.

Here are 6 faces MadeWithBalloons™ to stir your balloon imagination and whet your appetite for more.


You will come “face to balloon face” with resources that help you build “YOUR SUCCESS MadeWithBalloons™”.

It was about 12 feet by 12 feet in size and hung so as to glow like a stained glass window in the sun.
See the construction and the full display in this article.  It will give you ideas on design, display and construction techniques you might want to use yourself.

The Face of Jesus at 33' tall MadeWithBalloons™ and Rouse Matrix™ Expand-And-Load™ square grid balloon frames This balloon sketch of the face of Jesus at the time of his crucifixion was designed for Rouse Matrix  square grid balloon frames and would stand 33′ tall.

Barack Obama Portrait MadeWithBalloons™Barack Obama is the current president of the United States of America. The nested garland (precision wall) technique used in construction of his portrait may require twice as many balloons and much more planning and construction time than Rouse Matrix honeycomb grids, but it certainly can produce fine results.

Fine results are what you will see produced by Manon Dusiak and her team in this project for Balloon Arts Convention Italy (BACI) 2012.

    Here is another great face MadeWithBalloons. This one is by Larry Moss with Kelly Cheatle.  It is a sculpture rather than a flat graphic like the ones in the article above, but it is certainly worth sharing.
