No pens. I used a small lettering quill, maybe a #1 or 2 Scharff 'Grey Line', and One Shot lettering enamel with a bit of hardener in it----standard sign painting stuff. We're part chemist you know. :D Thanks!

It turned out awesome!

I'll have to remember the materials you used when I'm called on letter a non-paper surface. I expect it will happen with my kids at one point or another!

Here it is. Unless you've ever tried to letter a round, rubber, 'pebbled' surface, you probably can't imagine what a challenge it is.

THAT is COOL! I played basketball in high school and would have LOVED to have one of these! Wouldn't have ever bounced it though-- too pretty.
