About: I'm a 14 year old boy from India. I love making things and am an avid reader. I make instructables for you all to learn something new and useful!

This is an amazing ball which, although on a ramp, can go down incredibly slowly. It can be used as a magic trick prop as it can really baffle the audience. This is very easy to make - no magnets, no strings, no hocus pocus, just pure awesomeness......

Step 1: Materials

All you need is -

1) Honey

2) A plastic ball (It should split in two halves)

3) A heavy ball (Smaller than the plastic ball)

That's it!

Step 2: Preparing the Ball

First of all, put the heavy ball inside the plastic one. Then, pour in honey so it covers at least half of the heavy ball. Put the top back on and you're done!

(Note: If you're using a transparent plastic ball, you might want to conceal the insides)

Step 3: Final Result

This is the video of it in action **Sorry for the bad quality**

    Actually I didn't have a heavy ball. I took 2 part epoxy (m seal), rolled it up into a ball and let it set (It was really heavy). As for the plastic ball, it came with a pack of chocolates and a toy (Kind of like Kinder surprises).
