Hikaru Dorodango by snowkingdev Hikaru Dorodango by snowkingdev
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

My first dorodango. Dorodango is a Japanese art form in which soil and water are molded to create a delicate shiny sphere, resembling a marble or billiard ball. It's made out of 5 different soil, from important places of my life. The pillow is made by my girlfriend.

Tools: soil, water, bowls, patience

Thank you! I think it isn't perfect, it's a bit bumpy.
