These images show the results of twisting 6-inch heart balloons. The parachute shown here is created from six 6-inch hearts. This year's IBAC twister jam at Ed Debevic's proved that the parachute is easily converted into a beanie. Inverted, it can be used as a bowl-shape for small figures or centerpieces.

More than 1,150 professional balloon artists worldwide attended the 15th annual International Balloon Arts Convention (IBAC), March 10-14, in Rosemont, IL. 200 of the convention delegates helped construct the world's largest balloon mural. Made with 70,884 Qualatex latex balloons and standing 86 feet high x 58 feet wide, the mural depicted downtown Chicago on New Year's Eve and took a total of 1,300 man hours to construct and perfect.
