Here is a tutorial on how I finished up the penny ball by applying grout and sealer. I believe it makes a difference, both aesthetically and functionally. If you miss the tutorial yesterday on how to make a penny ball, you can read it here.. Penny Ball . Tomorrow I will show you how I created some whimsical garden art using the balls and additional materials in what is now affectionately referred to as the Penny Ball Garden. KBJ….thanks for your sense of humor and help in installing my idea in the garden.
Applying the grout: Using a clean cottage cheese container, I used about one cup of powdered grout, then follow the directions on the bag, which after mixing instructs you to “rest” the mixture. Do not skip this step.
After you have cleaned off the group, let dry for a bit, and a haze develops indicating it is time to buff it clean. I use old shoulder pads….they worked especially well for the size of the project. I waited a couple of hours, then did the other half of each ball.
This part is all done. Tomorrow I will have photos of the finished Penny Ball Garden, and you can see what I did with them. I hope you will come back to see how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by. Laters, charisse
