Where can I get all these made? –
We used a welder and we recommend you find one (either find one online in your area, or call a fellow balloon artist decorator and ask him for his welder). See the info about the welder in the arch frame intro.
How am I going to bend the metal to the right shape?
The metal angle is something that is hard to explain but it doesn’t matter that much. The goal is to create a bend that makes the overall carriage looks roundish. So you can show the pictures to the welder.
6mm metal poles are very easy to bend in the human hand. We actually show the end results to the welder and the make sure all of them are bent exactly the same way! The angles can change, but we are trying to create an atmosphere. I can also change the angle a bit in the metal as its only 6mm width and easy to bend.
