    wow cool.

    I have a feeling fiberglassing your own would be shitty.

    fiberglassing is extremely easy. and since you dont care what the outside looks like it will be even easier.

    all you need is this:

    Fiberglass Resin: get it at a boat supply store, or hardware stores sell it sometimes too

    Hardener: Same place you got the Resin from

    Fiberglass: cheapest at the boat store, since you can buy it in big pieces instead of little packages.

    Paint thinner
    cheap paintbrushes
    disposable gloves

    Cut the fiberglass into pieces about 3 inches by 3 inches.


    Mix the resin and hardener using the instructions on the box, its a certain amount of hardener, about a few drops to a certain amount of resin.

    use masking tape to put all over the ball so that the fiberglass will come off easily when you are finished.

    put on some gloves, get your paintbrush, take a piece of fiberglass, use the paintbrush to soak the fiberglass in the resin hardner mix, put the soaked fiberglass on the big ball and continue overlapping the pieces. let dry for a few hours, then repeat until you have a few layers.

    soak the paintbrushes in the paint thinner if you want to use them again.

    thats about it

    I actually searched for this the other day, and a decent number of people do it with paper mache on a 10-18" ball and fill it with quik-crete
