I am having a themed bridal shower for my Cousion I want to take beach balls and make bowls out of them somehow.

Can't think of what I cause to harden the inflated beach ball ?   I need it to beard snuff to cut in half , I can then coat it to be smooth np. Just not sure what to use to make it as hard as glass.....

Any ideas would be soo. Cool thank you

I am not an expert on this sort of stuff by any means (so don't take my word for it), but if you need to coat your beachball in something (ideally clear I'm guessing), would epoxy work? Since we use it at school to laminate glass together I'm going to safely assume that it at least falls under the category of 'hard as glass'.

Why not just start with a glass bowl and fix half the ball to that?
It would remove a good deal of difficulty for your project, leaving only the task of getting it stretched over the bowl neatly.
