BARKING DOG MadeWithBalloons™

R-E-A-L™  (Rouse-Expand-And-Load™)  Balloon  Frames design for Keith Haring's "Barking Dog" graphic painting



Logo of Graphics MadeWithBalloon™ web sites

BARKING DOG MadeWithBalloons™

This is a graphic designed by Graham and Mary Queen Rouse for the 2002 International Balloons Arts Convention (IBAC).

IBAC was, for 20 years, the annual, premier international balloon convention and the precursor to the World Balloon Convention currently held every other year by Pioneer Balloon Company.

Barking Dog source painting by Keith HaringThe painting to the left by the artist Keith Haring, was the inspiration for the design above. Keith Haring was an American (USA) artist that was internationally recognized and especially influential in the 1980s.

It was  chosen by Rocky Toomey as one of a group of paintings to be reproduced with Qualatex balloons in Rouse Matrix™ Expand-And-Load™ balloon frames for the final night gala gallery of balloon art.

The final version (below) (9′ by 6′) that was installed for the event was a simplified version of the design above. 

Many of the “Split Apertures” that were planned for the design were sacrificed to save time.

Finished installation of Kith Haring "Barking Dog" design MadeWithBalloons and Rouse Matrix, R-E-A-L™ (Rouse-Expand-And-Load™) balloon grid frames.“Split Aperture” refers to filling an opening in the Matrix with more than one balloon so that thinner lines could be drawn and curves smoothed out. They can be very effective but do require extra materials and effort.

You may download free instructions for Split Apertures from this link.  

.

GETTING BETTER

IBAC 2002 was a great experience and we produced some fine balloon art for the final night gala, but I do wish that we had then the knowledge, skills, balloons and tools we have today. We could have done it all so much more easily and quickly

The Conwin inflators were a great boon then and we still use them today, but the newer versions of the Split Second Dual Sizer are easier to use.

The Rouse Matrix™ we used then was in about the second generation. We are now into the “G-4”, fourth generation. RMS™ G-4 is thinner, lighter, more compact, translucent, holds balloons better, connects more easily and securely, is easy on the hands, costs less in uninflated dollars and comes in a gazillion variations (well, really only 140+, but that is still a lot).

Double-ended balloons such as Quick Link Balloons™ and Link-O-Loons™ were not available for this event. Bee bodies (#321 balloons) were available but in only one, small size and limited colors. Link-O-Loons™ were just being developed in Mexico and Australia; and Quick Link Balloons™ were still more than a decade away.

.

"FAST" illustration / icon for RE-A-L™ Balloon Art techniques with Rouse Matrix™ Expand-And-Load Balloon FramesRouse “Speed Graphics” had not been developed either. 

This “FAST” technique, as we refer to it, uses strings of double-ended balloons and rolls connected balloons into adjacent openings in Rouse Matrix. With a little practice you should double or quadruple your balloon loading speed.  But, it is possible to get much faster than that as shown in this short video. 

.

COMBINING ADVANCES

If we had then, the advanced equipment, balloons, expandable frames and FAST techniques of today; we could easily have saved between 50% and 90% of the time we spent loading balloons. And, that would have been a lot of time saved considering the scale of the decorations for the gala.

No telling what marvelous things we might have added to the decor with all those extra man hours.

No telling what marvelous things you might add to your decor or additional profits you might add to your bank account by using these same advances in your balloon work today.

We wish you luck and recommend these resources to help you get under way:

SIMPLE BAT OVER THE MOON MadeWithBalloons™

Graphic MadeWithBalloons™ and RMS™ Banners of a bat flying across the moonSIMPLE BAT OVER THE MOON MadeWithBalloons™

.

Logo of Graphics MadeWithBalloon™ web sitesHERE IS A SIMPLE WAY.

Here is a simple way to build the “Bat Over The Moon” design above. It is MadeWithBalloons™ and Rouse Matrix™ Banner balloon frames.

.

The three minute video immediately below gives you an overview of working with RMS™ Banners and with the Rouse patented “SIMPLE” technique:

This technique of loading connected balloons in adjacent openings is a Rouse Original Technique and is patented in the USA for use exclusively with Rouse Matrix™ frames. It has advantages over loading balloons in singles:

  • Balloons are tied two at once.
  • Pick up and handle two balloons at once.
  • Load one balloon and the second is right there for loading next.
  • Each balloon acts as an anchor helping to hold the other in place

 

THE DESIGN

The illustration below shows the “Bat Over The Moon” design laid out on RMS™ Banner graph paper.  You may download the same graph paper for planning designs of your own from

The illustration below breaks the design into rows and then into pairs of balloons. Since there are an odd number of balloons in each horizontal row, there is a single balloon at the left end of each row. Combine the single balloon in one row with a single from the adjacent row.  Examples are wrapped in red ovals in the illustration below. There is just one single balloon to be loaded by itself in the bottom left hand corner. WithBalloons™ and Rouse Matrix™ of bat flying across moon separated into pairs of balloons

BALLOON COLORS

We have chosen these colors, but you may choose your own.

  • 158 Purple balloons (5″-6″)
  • 129 Light Blue balloons (5″-6″)
  •  99 Yellow balloons (5″-6″)
  •  97 Black balloons (5″-6″)
  • 2 Red balloons (5″-6″) for eyes

.

PREPARE BALLOONS IN PAIRS

 

  • Inflate, size & tie balloons in pairs according to the layout above (or your own revised layout if you like) and the instructions below.
  • Inflate and size balloons to 4" after squeezing them .Tie them in pairs to match your plan.
  • Inflate and size balloons to 4″ after squeezing them .Tie them in pairs to match your plan.
  • Most balloons are not spheres, but are longer from the inflation neck to the opposite end of the balloon.  Squeezing balloons as shown above before measuring them helps to get more accurate sizing.

 

Rouse Matrix™ Banners

  • (2) Packages of RMS™’ Banner Expand-And-Load™ panels (2 panels to a package). Connect 4 of the RMS™ Banner′ panels. Connect two side by side in a horizontal line and then two more directly above them into a group of four. Rotate them 90 degrees clockwise and expand to the right into a square shape.
  • Immediately below is a video that demonstrates the steps from taking the Banner Matrix out of the packages right through setting them up and ready to load balloons.

.

STAND UP YOUR DISPLAY

Standard installation works well.  On this design we recommend using at least two base plates with vertical poles or pipes behind the display. Use them on the back side of the display. Use one near each end.

You may use cable ties (zip ties / electrical ties), elastic bands or other lines to tie around the vertical element and the Matrix straps between balloons.  We recommend at least three connections on each vertical. Use at least one near the top and bottom and at least one in the middle.

Tighten the connection until balloons are snug against the vertical element. If you tighten it too much you will force balloons out of the Matrix. .

CAT & PUMPKIN WALL MadeWithBalloons™

Cat & Pumpkin Wall" MadeWithBalloons™ and Rouse Matrix Expand-And-Load™ balloon frames

 

CAT & PUMPKIN WALL
MadeWithBalloons™

 

Logo of Graphics MadeWithBalloon™ web sites

This is a 20′ wall MadeWithBalloons™and Rouse Matrix™ Builders. It looks like a lot of fun for Halloween today. It was also fun when it was first built in Spain in 2008.

Here are some notes on how it was done and techniques you can use to build similar displays of your own.

Students at this RouseABOUT™ Graphics Seminar in Madrid used the Rouse patented “FAST” (“Speed Graphics”) technique to load strings of double-ended balloons into connected Rouse Matrix™ Builders to form the pumpkin wall. 

"Cat & Pumpkin Wall" construction MadeWithBalloons™ and Rouse Matrix™ Expand-And-Load™, JustRouseIt™ balloon framesThe black cat was made with smaller balloons inflated to 4″ in diameter and loaded into RMS™ Banners in a cat shape. Scissors were used to cut around the cat to eliminate the extra Matrix. The cat was used as an overlay on top of the wall.

WORLD RECORD DEMONSTRATION

This short (81 seconds) video demonstrates just how fast this Rouse “Speed Graphics” technique can be.

A CLOSER LOOK

This 2.5 minute video gives you a closer look at just how this “FAST” technique works whether you are building a design for Halloween, Christmas, New Year, etc. With a little practice you can double or quadruple your balloon loading speed. Just be sure to use official Rouse Matrix™ Expand-And-Load™ balloon frames.

This technique is patented and requires a special license for use with other balloon frames. Contact Graham Rouse at gmr@rousetech.com for a license for frames other than RMS™.

BACK TO SCHOOL BUS
MadeWithBalloons™

.

Logo of Graphics MadeWithBalloon™ web sites

Let’s make it fun to go back to school!  

This design shared by Garlis Nayive Bolivar certainly helps that happen. 

There is a big yellow bus with smiling children’s faces. The ‘SCHOOL BUS” label leaves no doubt as to the destination. The giant wheels look like they just might get us there faster.

I like the change in texture for the horizontal stripes. Windows, tail lights and head lights are all in position.

I almost expect the hear the engine start and the bus to move.

It looks like it would be a fun trip Back To School MadeWithBalloons™.

HOW TO FLY YOUR WITCH OVER THE MOON

Graphic MadeWithBalloons™ and Rouse Matrix ™ Banners showing a witch flying across the moonHOW TO FLY YOUR
WITCH OVER THE MOON

MadeWithBalloons™

Logo of Graphics MadeWithBalloon™ web sitesCHOOSE YOUR SCALE

This Halloween design can be built in many different sizes. The 8′ by 8′ size is likely to be the most popular. We use this version for our RouseCIPIES™ below. It will fit most rooms, will show off well from a distance and yet is small enough to fit easily, with a little bending or folding, through most standard doorways That makes it easier to build off site and bring it in just before your event. It takes five  packages of RMS™ Banners and balloons inflated 4″ in diameter.

Scale it up with Rouse Matrix™ Builders and balloons inflated 8″ in diameter. It takes ten packages of Builders to build this design 16′ by 16′.  You can go larger with RMS Super Builders.

Scale it down to much smaller sizes with RMS Mini-Matrix and bubbles made from twisted long balloons like # 260 and #350 balloons.

(B)  HIGH SPEED RouseCIPE™ 

.

__________________________________________

"SIMPLE" illustration / logo / icon for RE-A-L™ Balloon Art(A)  ROUSEcipe™ FOR STANDARD DUPLET ASSEMBLY:


(1) BALLOONS
(We have chosen these colors, but you may use colors to match the season and your event.)

  • 168 Purple balloons (5″-6″)
  • 199 silver balloons (5″-6″)
  • 286 Yellow balloons (5″-6″)
  • 169 Black balloons (5″-6″)
  •  86 Gold Balloons (5″-6″)
  •    2 Red balloons (5″-6″) for eyes


(2) Rouse Matrix™ Banners

  • (5) Packages of RMS™’ Banner Expand-And-Load™ panels (2 panels to a package). Connect 9 of the RMS™ Banner′ panels. Connect three side by side in a horizontal line and then two more rows of three directly above them into a group of nine.
  • Be sure that the logo “R” is in the upper left hand corner of each panel. Stretch open the Matrix in sections according to printed instructions that come with the Matrix. If fully expanded, it would look like the illustration below.
  • For loading of balloons, however, we recommend that you rotate the Matrix 90 degrees counter clockwise. This will make it easier to load balloons in straight, horizontal lines.

Illustration of assembly and loading pattern of balloons for the RMS Witch flying over the moon balloon graphic

Assemble 9 RMS™ Banner panels in three rows of three panels with the logo “R” in the upper left hand corner of each panel. Expand Matrix to hold balloons.

  • For our original venue the 8′ by 8′ size fit nicely.  That meant that we cut away the extra Matrix material with scissors. You may prefer to use the full, approximately 9′ by 9′ size of the 9 RMS Banner Panels


(3) LAYOUT FOR LOADING BALLOONS

We rotated this design 90 degrees counterclockwise before spreading it out into rows and then into pairs. Every other row has an odd number, so there is a single balloon at the left end of those rows.

This orientation produces straight, horizontal rows and makes it easier to load balloons.

Layout pattern for pairs of balloons rotated 90 degrees and spread apart. This orientation makes it easier to load balloons in straight, horizontal rows.

(4) PREPARE BALLOONS IN PAIRS

Inflate, size & tie balloons in pairs according to your plan and the instructions below.

Inflate and size balloons to 4" after squeezing them .Tie them in pairs to match your plan.

Most balloons are not spheres, but are longer from the inflation neck to the opposite end of the balloon.  Squeezing balloons as show above before measuring them helps to get more accurate sizing.

.

(5) LOAD BALLOONS IN PAIRS

Roll balloons into adjacent openings according to your plan and make sure they are centered in the Matrix straps.

This technique of loading connected balloons in adjacent openings is a Rouse Original Technique and is patented in the USA for use exclusively with Rouse Matrix™ frames. It has advantages over loading balloons in singles:

  • Balloons are tied two at once.
  • Pick up and handle two balloons at once.
  • Load one balloon and the second is right there for loading next.
  • Each balloon acts as an anchor helping to hold the other in place

 

(6) STAND UP YOUR DISPLAY

Standard installation works well.  On this design we recommend using at least two base plates with vertical poles or pipes behind the display. Use them on the back side of the display. Use one near each end.

You may use cable ties (zip ties / electrical ties), elastic bands or other lines to tie around the vertical element and the Matrix straps between balloons.  We recommend at least three connections on each vertical. Use at least one near the top and bottom and at least one in the middle.

Tighten the connection until balloons are snug against the vertical element. If you tighten it too much you will force balloons out of the Matrix.

.

"FAST" illustration / logo / icon for RE-A-L™ Balloon Art(B)  ROUSEcipe™ FOR SPEED GRAPHIC™ ASSEMBLY:


(1) BALLOONS 

  • They are the same as above except, use Double Ended Balloons (DEBs) Like Quick Link Balloons™ or Link-O-Loons™ rather than standard round balloons.

 

(2) Rouse Matrix ™ Banners

  • Combine and expand the same as above.

 .

(3) LAYOUT FOR LOADING BALLOONS

  • Rotate the design 90 degrees counterclockwise and spread out the design into rows and then into pairs of balloons as shown above.

.

(4) PREPARE BALLOONS IN PAIRS

  • Inflate, size & tie balloons in sets according to your plan and the instructions above
  • Tie all the balloons in each row into a single string of balloons. 

.

(5) LOAD BALLOONS IN STRINGS

  •  Roll balloons into adjacent openings according to your plan and make sure they are centered in the Matrix straps.
  • This 80 seconds video will give you an idea of just how fast balloons can be loaded with this “Speed Graphic™” technique.

You are not likely to be this fast, at least not at first.  It is normal, however to load two to four times faster using this technique.

This technique variation of loading connected balloons in adjacent openings is also a Rouse Original Technique and is patented in the USA for use exclusively with Rouse Matrix™ frames.

.

(6) STAND UP YOUR DISPLAY

  • Standard installation works well. Use the same instructions as shown above.

Whether you choose classic pairs or Speed Graphic strings, you end up with new skills and a fun display MadeWithBalloons™.  Here are some resources to help you get started.
