Another Bowling Ball Project (pic)

Here it is in the earlier stages:


And when finished:


I used the silvery colored Hammered Paint, then patted on and wiped off watered down black paint. The stand is a candle holder? I picked up at a yard sale.

This one is a little different from the copper colored lizard one I did last year. The frogs don't stick as well, but I wanted to use them as they were some my DD collected when she was smaller. I'm giving this one away to my Mom for her birthday next week. I thought it looked kind of neat before painting too!

Thanks earthlydelights!

I use superglue gel and wear the cheap disposable rubber gloves to save my fingers from getting stuck together!

Very cute, Lydia!

I have another ball sitting next to my desk waiting
for the hole plugs to dry, and it will become a
frog ball as well. I found a great bag of lizards,
frogs and snakes on the cereal aisle.

Much too fun!

This is quite a neat idea

I think that I shall try it as well

Have bowling balls and even a little stand such as the one you show. I was wondering why I was keeping the little stand

Thanks
