Magnetic Katamari Ball

Postby meowath » Mon Aug 12, 2013 2:17 pm

finished my magnetic Katamari ball. It was a relativity quick project (just the weekend), with the hardest part being finding the right magnets.

OH MY GOSH, that is so excellent! *all the grabby hands*

You did a wonderful job. Perfect color choices and its little magnetic nubbins are just so cute.

I love it! That's one of the neatest things I've seen in quite awhile and I think I see many of these in my future. Yours looks absolutely fantastic!
