Gazing Ball done
Here's my first try at a bowling ball mosaic. I used silvercoat mirror red and gold for the sun, and glow-in-dark blue for the moon. Underneath the moon are a dusting of starts, with the ORION constellation included, those are glowinthedark too. I'm anxious to see how it will look at night, but first i have to do build a pedestal. I have a heavy piece of irrigation pipe that i will concrete, bought a piece of rebar today at Lowes and left one hole open in the BB. So should be able to feed the ball onto the stand. Then I will mosaic the stand.
I've read several ways of doing the pedestal but i think for my first try, i will just concrete INSIDE the pipe, leave the pipe there and then concrete over the pipe. I might just be able to pull the pipe out and use it again, but in was really cheap. Stay tuned..
