Twisting - 21st Century Fashion
The concept of twisting firmly entered our lives with the advent of cigarette balls, or, as they are called, sausages. These elongated things themselves look original, and even allow you to create the most incredible shapes. Finished products are used for decoration of celebrations, shopping and entertainment facilities, circus performances or as children's toys. Models of balls simply twist and do not deflate for a long time. In addition, funny animals - the most popular type of twisting - look cute and childish directly.
Tips experienced masters

- balls for the product is better to take latex (they are very flexible and strong);
- balls 260 and 260-2 - the most suitable size for dogs;
- all twisting must be done in one direction - clockwise or counterclockwise;
- it is necessary to tie a ball on knots, threads are not used;
- when blowing, be sure to leave a free tail without air (about 10 cm), so that the air moves there in the process of twisting the sausages.
