Nos 1 & 2 are made with the "Twist & shape balloon" (about 4"-4 1/2" height). Nos 3 & 4 are made with assorted balloons (6" & up height).

As long as the balloon has a tubular shape, you can make a penguin.

Tips

I use a wet wash towel (not dripping wet, just damp) on a plastic mat, folding the towel and indenting in the middle so the balloon will rest in the space. It will prevent the balloon from rolling while I work on it. It also prevents loose underside layers and frees both hands to work.
