    How to Make a Simple Fish - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Hi, my name is Tobi. I am with Arizona's Balloon Artist and I am want to show you several different creatures for the under the sea theme. Let us make a simple balloon fish. We are going to use a five inch yellow balloon and a 260 orange balloon. We pump up the five inch balloon, tie it off, using going around two fingers. We are going to fill the 260 approximately to about five inches uninflated. I am going to burp the balloon, tie it off, and we are going to make two large flower petals. Here is our first. I am going to soften this balloon again, and we are going to twist. Now I am creating the shape by simply taking the balloon in my hands, and cupping it in my fingers with my thumb. I am going to cut this and tie this into the intersection of the balloon, being careful to hold this closed so it does not deflate quickly. Keeping control of the balloon. Now, we are going to take the five inch balloon and we are going to wrap this in to the intersecting points, and position it. And much like this balloon, we are going to go ahead and make a fun face. With a black permanent marker, we will create an eye, and just to be fun, three eyelashes, and a large black eye, and then we are going to position lips. And we will create another set of eyes on the other side. A fun fish.
