"RMS  Classic Puffed  Heart"

G. Rouse 2006

RMS CLASSIC PUFFED HEART

RMS Puffed Hearts can make a beautiful. sophisticated addition to a Valentine event as well as to weddings, proms and other loving occasions. 

The 4' RMS Puffed Heart is a modern classic. It is hollow, lightweight and uses an expandable plastic framework that collapses for storage in a drawer or large envelope. There is enough volume inside the assembled heart to safely hang a light bulb. You will get glowing results and glowing reviews!

Use 312 round, 5" balloons for normal assembly.  You might try constructing the heart more securely and more quickly by using Link-O-Loon balloons. The "links" at each ends of the LOL's make it very easy, fast and secure to center the balloons in the "puffed" framework.

--  To learn skills which will be useful for many valentine decorations, get details for the  hands-on NIQBN RouseABOUT Grahpics Seminar, February 5 & 6, 2006 from this link.

"The Arrival"

 

It looks as if our lovely bride is just arriving at the church.

Remove the veil and flowers and she becomes a lovely girl just arriving at a prom or some other formal event.  

"The Arrival" is pictured in (1,500) 5" balloons which form this 9' x 12' balloon graphic.

YOU can learn the skills to produce this kind of balloon graphic at the NIQBN RouseABOUT  Graphics Seminar.  Check it out at this link.

" From Baby to Big Daddy Puffed Hearts"

G. Rouse 2006

RMS BABY PUFFED HEART

The RMS 18" "Baby" Puffed Heart is the smallest of our Puffed Heart Family. She has the same 312 openings as the larger versions. but each opening or "aperture" is smaller. 

You will need about 20-25 #260 balloons to make the Baby Puffed Heart. Twist a string of bubbles in each #260 and push the bubbles into the apertures.

Two RMS panels automatically form the halves of the heart.  The two Puffed Heart halves are  are connected by interlocking the tabs on each half to form a new row of apertures. Fill the new row of apertures with more bubbles from your #260 balloons to complete the operation.

Note:  The adorable little girl holding the RMS Baby Puffed Heart, is one of our five babies.... our granddaughter, Nielly Bevis, age 6.

 

RMS TODDLER TWO PUFFED HEART

The 2' "Toddler Two" is our #350 version of the Puffed Heart.  Use #350 balloons for this one.  The apertures and the bubbles are bigger so the Heart is also larger.  And, it takes more balloons that the #260 version. Nonetheless, the number of balloons used is still far smaller than when  regular round balloons are used.

 

BIG DADDY

The "Big Daddy" Puffed Heart is perfect for big venues, such as a gym or atrium.  Use underinflated 11" balloons for this one.  You get a huge 8' Puffed Heart from less than 4 pounds of RMS expandable plastic framework.  No problem with rigging.  It requires the same number (312) balloons.

 

PRACTICE  PRACTICE  PRACTICE  PRACTICE

The RMS Puffed Heart is beautiful.  It is also a very sophisticated piece and requires some knowledge of RMS to produce it.   Order early and practice well before you plan to use the Puffed Heart for the first time!  The Puffed Hearts  are not so difficult to assemble, but they do require balloon skills which are different from more common garlands, arches, or usual "Twistie" sculptures.  Give yourself plenty of time to become familiar with the product.
