Balloon Mobile Pieces from Haddad Art

Here are three sets of balloons with a new finish style.  The process to create this aged and primitive look includes:
  • Painting each piece a solid color.
  • Sanding each piece to take off the luster of the paint and remove paint from the edges
  • Repainting the balloons with a color wash to provide a muted warm affect.
  • Shellac will be applied to the balloons for a warm sheen
There are nine balloons which will be used for three balloons separate mobiles.  The clouds are in the process of drying with glossy white paint.

Each balloon have a gondola with two pilots.
