Here is my new BB that I covered in crash glass, it was hard to get a good pic.
OOOhhh ---- Looks like a big , icy snowball !!! I love it !
It does look like a giant ice ball....LOVE that since it's over 100 degrees here today!
LOVE it......looks like it might hurt to pick it up! Worth the ouch.....cause it's gorgeous
Frou, that is one really neat bowling ball!
I would never know that it was a bowling ball! That is so neat! You guys got me hooked on GJ. So creative!
I love it! I've read about crash glass before, but don't know much about it. Is it sharp? Where do you get it? How did you glue it on? I have 2 bowling balls just waiting for a dress up.
My 1st thought was of ocean water swirling around (like on a very windy day), 2nd was of a snowball. Take your pick! Both are pretty cool! Looks great! Jan
ICE Ball...how beautiful. I'd love to see it in the sunlight in real life!
I can't imagine the patience it took to do this either. WOW.
Fantastic! What was your technique?
I like your bottles too.
As usual, I have the crash glass and the BB--But I am OLD and then to procrastinate! LOL
You can usually get glass at wind shield and car window replacement places. Take a 5 gallon bucket! Or maybe they will just give you a window and let you break it.
Thanks guys. I have to confess this was the easiest project ever. I just spread GE II very thickly all over (sections) and then took hand fulls of glass and patted them on. After each section dried I brushed off the excess. It took about 3 gluings, letting each dry in between. I get my tempered glass from the glass/cutting store. They usually have stacks of used glass for really cheap. It's really not very sharp, I didn't wear gloves. But you should be careful, especially picking it up afterward.
This is beautiful, frou! And the stand you chose to place it if perfect, too! I just walked past a pc of glass I had DH save from an old fridge & was thinking I need to use that for something! Your BB is unique! I think it should be very 'frou, frou' in your gardens! TFS! Jeanne S.
Really beautiful. Very unusual and gorgeous.
Love it! I have a friend with a bunch of BB's and will have to show her this. Maybe she will make me one.
