I've been messing around with new ways to make bowling ball gazing balls. I made a Green Bay Packer helmet out of a football helmet I picked up at St. Vinny's for 99 cents and loved the way it came out. I also used the cracked marble method on the green and blue ball and baked alot of stones. I also coated a ball with sheet music and then covered it with stones, the notes magnified really well too. Lastly I found these glass curly stones and thought they would look kind of different as well. I hope you guys like them!! Lots of pics!

I got a bowling ball 2 years ago off of Freecycle to do this...
Yours came out really fantastic!  I'm not sure if I see me getting to make mine this summer again.. but we'll see!

Nifty idea with the football helmet too Smiley

They look great!  Great job!  Cool idea with music underneath, I bet it looks cool up close.
