Introduction: Billiard Ball Koi Fish.

About: Self learner and father of three, nature lover.

I used this last weekend summer to clean and organize my workshop, between all the mess and unusual stuff around, I found some Pool Balls. Let's get Handy and see what I I made.After all, it was give it life or throw it away...carefully.

Step 1: Supplies

Pool Ball


Dremel Stylus.

Carving Tools : 105, 107, 108.

Acrylyc paints.

Step 2: 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
