how to make pokeballs tutorial by Kisshu-Neko how to make pokeballs tutorial by Kisshu-Neko
This is how I make my pokeballs for my cosplay :). I hope it will help someone.

Mine aren't 100% accurate, bu since I'm not very good at painting I can be proud of myself...

And I used styrofoam balls to do this. Maybe I didn't wrote this but it is the base of a pokeball....

I don't know what more to say, if you have any questions I will try to awnser the best I can :). Pokeballs are very easy to do but very long to finish....

EDIT: Wow thanks for all those views! i'm happy to see that my tutorial is useful :D

And those are examples of what you might get when you are finished! (those pokeballs aren't mine, they belong to their respective owners):

You used a Heal Ball! It hasn't been forgotten! x33

Actually, I do not use heal balls in the pokemon games (honestly, I found them to be quite useless), but since it looks very pretty (and has lovely colors), I've decided to make one. :)

I personally loved the Luxury Ball. I mean, who doesn't like black?

It's a styrofoam ball :)

You can easily find them at dollar stores or craft stores for a cheap price, generally uner 1$.

they look nicer when u paint tennis balls. just some thought

Kisshu-Neko Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
That is very plausible since I haven't tried tennis balls yet. Plus I was in a rush when I first made these so I didn't took the time to put a lot of modpodge coats ^^"

you should try them sometime then! sadly they dont bounce.
another thing i like doing is getting the large plastic bouncy balls and painting those as giant pokeballs with acrylic paint. they r still bouncy!(USE TAPE TO MAKE THE EDGES NICE!):D

Kisshu-Neko Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes, I'll try to use that sometime if I do another pokemon cosplay. I've been getting this suggestion several times, so I guess that it works quite well!

Ilike the idea of using bouncy balls too.

what is the yogurt for?
Reply
:iconkisshu-neko:
Kisshu-Neko Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You just use the plastic pot that contains the yogurt. If I remember well, I used it either to use it as a stand for the pokeballs (it would have the same use as the egg box) or to pour modpodge in it.

I'm sorry if I did not answer your question clearly, it has been more than a year since I made this tutorial so I don't remember well ^^''

Yes, they are styrofoam balls. I used them because they are very cheap and easy to find :)

what can i use instead of mod podge??
Reply
:iconkisshu-neko:
Kisshu-Neko Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Frankly speaking, I don't really know what you could use instead... maybe some white acrylic paint or white glue could work?

Use something that will make your styrofoam balls look smoother. Also you must be able to paint on it afterwards :)

so if i dont have sandpaper i can just add more hodge podge to?
Reply
:iconkisshu-neko:
Kisshu-Neko Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
You can add more coats of modpodge so it will be smoother, but I don't know how many. I did not have the chance to try it...

I only did 3 oats because I needed them to be finished quickly for a picnic event. I suggest that you add as much as you need to obtain the perfect smoothness :)

Also, sandpaper is quite cheap. I think that you can buy it at a dollar store, if not there will surely have some in a local craf store :)

yeah but since i'm low on money i'm just going to use a golf ball but have to find a way to make it smothe and paintable.

Kisshu-Neko Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Maybe you could try to smooth it with sandpaper? I've never tried myself, but if your golf balls are made in some kind of plastic it should work.

Oh and also, styrofoam balls are very cheap. I've bought mine for less than 2$ or something like that. :)
