      • Debbie Hudson

        Sue, I have a question for you on your bowling ball orb .You said to prep to get wax off and then lightly sand it and paint it what kind of paint and color and do you even have to paint it ? Thanks Debbie..

      • Hi Debbie, I didn’t have to paint my bowling ball because the black fit with my colors. Had I painted it(with primer) it would have been more reflective and therefore brighter. For those making penny balls, a BB covered with about 8-9 dollars of pennies, painting the BB a copper color would blend with the pennies. Some who didn’t do that needed two layers! ~~ Sue.

  6. Jean, you may also email your Celebrate Spring photo entry to
    Winners will be announced on FB and here on this post. :-) Sue
