Super Easy Bowling Ball

Bowling Ball

In Paint Shop Pro (I used version X) create a circle with your selection tool the size you want your bowling ball to be. Go to the Balls & Bubbles filter and use the settings in the screenshots.

Once you have your ball, create a smaller circle with your selection tool for the finger inserts on a new layer and fill with black. Then give that filled circle a drop shadow with white. (refer to the screenshot for settings)

Drop Shadow Settings

Duplicate the black circle twice and move into the proper placements on the ball. The thumb should be a bit larger to be authentic looking, I didn’t do that here.

Did I lie? That’s it, super easy!
