Spring! (A project in need of a name)

13 years ago

For those who asked if I was working on a project...I finished this spring sphere today! It's my first TG project and first bowling ball. I was inspired by a project done by a gal on another forum who covered her ball with wrapping paper before using tempered glass for her tesserae. I enjoyed hers, so decided to try it. She suggested she'd sprayed her paper with a UV spray to try to keep the paper from fading, so I did the same. We'll let you know if it worked!

I enjoyed working with the tempered glass, though I got little slivers from it and it's also a little dicey when working in the dining room where bare feet dwell.

I finally got it grouted today and am happy enough with the gray grout. I mixed it using too much black colorant, and ended up adding more grout til I ended up with about a quart of grout! I'll learn, I'll learn...

I'll take this to the sale on Saturday and let you know how it goes. It's fun to have some new things to show.

Does any one have an idea for a name for this Springy sphere?
