Thank you, Faye!
Yours is one of the best tutorials for this craft I've ever seen. I've never tried to create a "disco ball" but am very tempted after seeing your really beautiful creations!

I know... they're really gazing balls! Big Grin

Those of us of a certain age and experience will always call those like yours 'disco balls', Faye.

Hilarious! Think I must have missed the Disco stage all together. Oh I remember the flashing lights, and he rotating ball, and seeing the dance floor full, but I never was a part of it. Poor deprived me. Sad
Really, as long as you like "It" you can call it anything that pleases you. Lovey dubby

Faye...That is just as sweet as you are!! I had a BB in my yard...it was a blue/white marble finish...I hadn't done anything to it yet...but it was purty. My neice came for a visit and saw it....it was just her size so I traded it to her for a purse! She took it on the plane in her luggage. I still have 2 more just waiting for the day I can get "aroundtoit". Jo
