put a plastic chopstick into the twisting balloon, then its really easy to use it to push the balloon into a sleeve of that sort.

Not sure what you're talking about.

My bad, i followed the link to one of your youtube videos after watching this one about soft muscles, and commented here instead of on there. Pushing a latex twisting balloon into a braided flexible sleeve. Balloon twisters sometimes double layer twisting balloons. You push a chopstick into the inside balloon, use that to push it into the outer balloon, then pull the chopstick out while holding the ends of both balloons (one inside the other).

Oh okay I get it. I may try that at some point.

what kind of material did you pour into the mold

I used Ecoflex 00-30. I recommend you look at the Instructables guide I linked in the description.
