Amazing balloon artist turns balloons into art.

 

The next time someone offers you a balloon hat think about these amazing recreations of art.  Larry Ross takes balloon art to a new level. He uses a wide variety of latex balloons to make his artistic creations.

He has created some amazing balloon art including Boticelli’s Birth of Venus, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, and other American icons such as Tomato Soup.

Learn Something Fun: The first rubber balloons were made by Professor Michael Faraday in 1824 for use in his experiments with hydrogen at the Royal Institution in London.Faraday made his balloons by cutting round two sheets of rubber laid together and pressing the edges together. The tacky rubber welded automatically, and the inside of the balloon was rubbed with flour to prevent the opposing surfaces joining together.
