This is just a quick visit to show off my massive balls.
Some of you may have already seen my 11x11x11 V-Ball puzzle transformation from January. In March I also finished the world's first Petaminx Ball puzzle transformation (AKA Petaball). As usual all work was done by hand including the stickers on the 11x11x11 V-Ball. I did however reluctantly seek help from Olivér's Stickers for the Petaminx Ball stickers. As you can see Olivér did a great job though I still had to cut the tiniest ones into three by hand!

WOW!!! What an outstanding craftsmanship!
I do not dare to estimate how many hours one of them needed.

Nice work as usual Tony. You could have also stickered the Petaminx ball like this so it would solve like a Peta-Hexaminx :shock:

Wow!
This is just amazing!
There's no stopping you, Tony...
I bet applying stickers was a painful process.
I love it.

Few would have the cojones to attempt such projects, and even fewer could hope to do them so well.

*Great* to have you post about them.

Wow! Thanks for sharing! They both turn quite well. I can't even fathom putting those stickers on.
