Time to finish my penny gazing bowling-ball.

by CeeJai
I pick up pennies off the side walks so it doesn't cost me a penny...(hehehe).
I painted the bowling ball with copper paint first - then glue on the pennies with Goop glue. I leave the holes so people can see it is a bowling ball.
Pennies from heaven ;0

    How many pennies did it take?

    May I use clear gorilla glue to glue the pennies on? May I spray Rust-oleum painters touch 2x ultra cover gloss clear over finished project? What is the best way to seal finger holes? Thanks!

    You can also purchase a cleaner for copper. Many used to clean and shine the bittoms of their cookware with this

    I am making a penny ball too,but I tried gorilla glue but that didn't seem to work so I decided to use hot glue gun. Now to see if it holds up in the outdoors! Lol

      Let me know if the hot glue works. How did you get the gorilla glue off?
