Out of Thin Air Balloon Artistry


I hope someone can help me with 2 questions.

    1.  I would like to do some lit abstract 260Q sculptures similar to those 
created by Graham Rouse (Images July/August 1992).  What is the best type of 
base to use, how long should the wires be, can I make these the day before 
and just break the glow stick before the event (7:30 Am), and do I insert the 
wire and glow stick together and then just inflate the balloon?

    2. The client would like a large (about 5 ft. diameter) compass on the 
stage.  How would I make one (??????), and how can I ensure it is free 
standing? I can not attach anything inside the hall.

Thank you so much for any help you can give me on this.
