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.

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.

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.
