I cleaned the balls with mineral spirits, sanded with fine sand paper, spray painted two coats of silver and one clear coat.

Those are awesome! I have a couple of bowling balls in the shed that I haven't decorated yet. I like the silver paint. Very classy.

I thought they were pretty cool even before you painted them, but that silver paint job really is awesome. They look great.

You used just regular silver spray paint?

I love the look of the silver paint. But I suffer from a disease that I have to further decorate items!! "I love the cluster effect" TYFS Jlily
