Step 2: Drawing and Engraving.

Picture of Drawing and Engraving.

I choose to draw a Koi Fish, just print some cool image and start to draw with a sharpie all around the ball. Put firmly the ball in a surface where I could work propertly. I used the Dremel Engraving Cutter Set. Cat No 300. 105, 107, 108, 110 ,111 and 113 bits.

Step 3: Painting.

Once was engraving I soake the ball in black paint, let it dry one day, then clean it with a piece of fabric wet in thinner or solvent, carefully so the black paint stay in the engraving. Finnally paint it with acrylic paints.

Let me know if you like the final result, any thoughts

Impressive work! It seems like it would be pretty hard to draw on and carve a round object :)

Yup, hard to draw, harder to carve. Thanks for your comment
