You really should encase the feeshus ball in resin.  It'll make a great paper weight and it'll come in handy when you need to embarrass the boy later in life. [^] It's pointless to try and embarrass a 3 year old, but it will make a great wedding present. Mwaaaaahaaaahaaaahaaaahaaaa

I made a hemispherical resin paperweight XX years ago.The resin stuff really stinks and heats up as it sets, (exothermic reaction),particularly if you put too much hardener in like I did.Trapped air bubbles are a problem. Use the least amount of hardener possible to set: the longer set time gives the air bubbles time to reach the surface before it solidifies.You'll have to find some way of suspending the ball in the centre of the mould, e.g. attach the ball to a little post of resin made by filling a 2" bit of drinking straw with resin...[attachment=8923]
