QuickLinks Santa Mural - a Christmas gift from Luc Bertrand CBA

Each year the lovely Luc Bertrand very kindly creates and gives a new design to the Very Best Balloon Blog to share with the 'balloon community', and this year he has designed this wonderful 'super easy' Santa mural that is so quick to make using Qualatex Quick Link balloons!

This 225 cm high Santa could be used in so many ways to decorate parties, shops & stores, showrooms, shopping malls and more, they can be used as backdrops or suspended from ceiling, their use is endless and look at how few balloons it takes to make!

I don't know about you, but I love them all and cant wait to make one! I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Luc for his generosity sharing his fantastic designs, I am sure that many many balloon artists around the world have benefitted hugely from his creativity and willingness to share! 

Luc will be teaching at the World Balloon Convention in Denver 2014, his classes are always packed with creative designs, awesome techniques and great information. He will be teaching 3 classes Building the Perfect Branding Blocks, Framing Made Easy & Speed Decorating - to find out more about each of Luc's classes just click on the class titles above. We are hoping to see many of you at the World balloon Convention it's going to be AMAZING!

I have a feeling that we will see many of these lovely Santa's made over the next weeks, so please post them on to the Qualatex Facebook page and add a big thank you to Luc too!

Happy Ballooning!

Hi David, thank you for leaving your comments. With regard to creating a video clip showing off Luc's design, I am afraid that I cannot give permission for this. This is Luc's creation, which he has very kindly shared with the balloon community, I believe that by you copying it you may be infringing copyright laws, plus I think that Luc would probably prefer to do something like this himself. I thank you for asking and I will pass on your question to Luc so that he may respond to you directly himself. Kind regards Sue

Hi David, I understand that you want to share my design with the spanish community. However I can tell you that I plan to teach myself about how to conceive and how to make this type of design at WBC in Denver.
Personally I do not believe in showing finished designs via tutorials available on social media. I want my designs to be made by professional balloon colleagues only. As you can see, the drawings are international as not explained in any language, a professional should be able to understand from the drawings. Furthermore the very best balloon blog has the possibility to be read in any language. at the right side at the bottom there is a button: Translate the Very Best Balloon Blog now!
that enables to translate into the selected language.
Happy ballooning, Luc
