string theory by NatalieKelsey string theory by NatalieKelsey
100 Picture Challenge #48 Childhood

I used to collect marbles as a child. I wasn't picky, I wanted as many as I could get. My favorite were cat's eye or smoky ones, and any kind of shooters. ;) I was really happy with how this turned out, I'd love to see it really made in glass.

This is really pretty! :clap: I have a big ol' jar of marbles, but cats eyes are actually my least favorite. I like the solid ones - especially the milky green.
And your AVATAR is way cool!!!

This really does look like a marble - rather than a sphere - because you can almost see through it.

This is so striking; the elctric blue is spot on.
I also love marbles... I went to a marble factory once in Devon; best day ever!

Yeah, marbles rock! If I had learned yet how I can make them with art glass I'd so make new ones! I still have to figure that one out though. Meanwhile your virtual ones are just delish!

Wow, I'd love to see what you make if you figure it out. I found a tutorial online and it looked really complicated.
