my first bowling ball - can't decide grout color

Please take a look & tell me what color grout you would use. Trying to decide if light or dark would look better.

Very nice! Has to be your personal preference (I'd probably go a light color grout) ...have you looked at the BB in the GJ Inspirational album? I posted a link today on another thread...but I'll put it here...maybe it can help you decide. TFS! Jeanne S.

Here is a link that might be useful: GJ Inspirational Album Bowling Balls

I too think that with the softer colors of the glass pieces, the lighter grout would look better. Let us see your finished creation!

I think lighter grout,also. Dark grout would just make it drab.

Thank you all. :-) & especially for sharing the link for the albumn - I had somehow missed it in my searching. Very inspirational & I have 3 more balls to do something with.

I love the dragonfly one - I've been trying to figure out how to get a dragonfly on one & this approach had not occurred to me.

That looks amazing!!! Where did you find the green ovals? I have only seen round ones. I would go with light grout too.

I got the long green ones at Dollar Tree. First time I've seen the long ones too.
