As can be seen, the grips cross the seams multiple times, and he sharpie marks were not quite perfectly continuous. This made making the guide a little more difficult. However, it was a fairly simple operation to push the clay onto the ball and then build up from that initial layer. The photo below shows how the clay adheres well to the leather of the ball, making a good base layer.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
