Koi Gazing Ball Finished

This is the ball grouted and sealed..... finished.   I added deep blue acrylic
house paint to the grout to color it.  It was a little bit more difficult to clean the
ball with this mix.  Last time I used watercolors.  Here, it is not easy to get
colored grout and the only store I found it in had only 10 Kilo bags.  10 kilos
is a lot when it takes about a cup or so to cover the whole ball!  So I
experimented with the house paint.  Making these is always an adventure.
I love the way that these reflect the light and add life to the garden,.  This
one is sitting a rustic table in front of an Mexican woven wall hanging.
