Material Required for Balloon Art - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Hello, my name is Mark Byrne. I am known as Mark the balloon guy with Funny Money Productions. The materials you are going to need to do balloon art are, obviously, balloons. Now, the balloons come in a couple of different sizes and stuff. This is a 260 balloon. This means it is 2 inches around and 60 inches long when fully inflated. They come from two major manufacturers in the world: Qualatex and Betallic. And if you are going to be blowing up balloons, doing it like that is kinda hard. So, you are probably going to need a balloon pump. The balloon pump you can take and just put right on here. And with a couple of quick strokes fills it right up. These balloon pumps are available at most major retailers. And we are ready to start.
