Step 1: Stuff U Need

Picture of Stuff U Need
Here is what you'll need to make the pokeballs.

-Plain white ping-pong balls

-permanent marker

-Acryllic paint

-Sealer(optional)

Step 2: The right ball for the job.

Picture of The right ball for the job.
As you can see I have a regular ping -pong ball in my hand (Yawn). To properly transform this into a pokeball, you need some paint and a permanent marker to jazz 'em up!

If your balls have a logo or brand insignia on them simply paint over them with white paint, repeatedly coating and letting dry until the entire ball is stark white.

Step 3: Draw the middle...

The universal trait all pokeballs posess is the design on the middle line of the ball. Draw it out using your permanent marker.

Step 4: Paint away!

While I do have the classic red and white design goin' on, you can use any design and paint color you so choose.

Use paint sealer when finished to preserve your pokeballs.

Step 5: START CATCHING POKEMON!!!

Does it bounce like a normal ping pong ball?
Best use of a ping pong ball I've ever seen.

Thanks! The balls were leftovers from a fauled venture into making a ping pong gun, so this was essentially making lemons into lemonade. Thanks again 4 the comment!!
I prefer the Master Ball to the Pokeball so the Master Ball would be a variation that I'd do.
