Magazine Ball2

This piece was made by using magazine paper rolled diagonally on a skewer.

Rolling each tube on the skewer flattens the paper tube, as I got to the end, I added another tube until I got to seven (7).

Once I had that large circle, gently pushing from the inside to created a dome.

Two of these pieces were created, glued the inside of each with white school glue, then glued the rims of the two domes together and the pendant came to life.

Magazine Ball

Glue was also added lavishly to the outside of the ball, varnished it with several different types (only because I cannot decide on which is better …smile).

Eventually, it is hard enough to string on chain and the rest is what is seen in the finished product.
