That is looking so good. You'll have to give us all the details on how you are putting the pics on the back of the half marbles. Did you cut up actual pics, or just do it somehow on your computer? Now I'm curious. That will be so fun for everyone. Luvs

wow ,after all that work I have to ask how well the photos will hold up in the weather, will the sun fade the photos? and how did you seal the back of the photo, what a wonderful idea and way to display all those cute family photos we all have plenty of, yes please tell us all the details!
Happy Crafting

what a Beautiful bowling ball!!!!!!!!!!! You did a great job. What a time consuming job that was but it was sure worth it. That is a great idea. I have done bowling balls but I would have never thought of anything like that. I didn't have any luck with gluing the marbles on. I used the silicone clear for windows and it just didn't work, The marbles started falling off the first summer, That is when I decided to paint them to look like different things.My painted bowling balls are on my website.

I've seen this done on hair clips and bracelets, but never on bowling balls! I too wonder how long till the weather eats up the photos. I've had bad luck with the GE silicone also. I started losing my marbles within a year after I glued them on. But then, I did leave the bb out all year round. Good luck with yours!

hahahaa "marbles lost"

That's cute. I just bought the GE II Silicone glue to try... I orig. had the GE I but was told it doesn't hold as well... I guess I will either return the GE I or keep it for a less stressful job.
