bowling ball gazing balls

glass .. this one I left one hole open and set in on a piece of rebar pounded in the garden...that way you can easily determine the height you want it.
pennies ... all heads up.... the clear coat really makes this sparkle in the sunshine
this is just setting on the center hub of an old wooden wagon wheel that could not be saved

    What did you seal it with? Was it sprayed on or brushed on? My pennies fell off

    OMG. What am I doing wrong? I'm trying to glue flat marbles on a bowling ball using Loctite adhesive. When they dry and I touch them, a lot just falls off. There must be a way to overcome this as I see beautiful finished ones on this site. Help me, please.

    What a great Idea! My parents have passed away and I have their bowling balls with their initials on them. Wanted to keep them but they are taking up space, they could be on display this way!
