Some twisters inflate their balloon with their own lungs and some others use an electric pump, hand pump or foot pump. The technique used for twisting balloons is also called “weaving”, “stuffing”.  Twisters do not generally fill their balloon with helium, as these designs will not float anyway. The balloon for twisting is too porous for helium and designs are generally too heavy for their size for helium to lift.


This type of art is gradually emerging in India and other countries. Each and every type of art should be preserved to show the beauty of creativity, that a man can achieve in his life.
