    So i realized the mixing ball in wicked is an honest to goodness mini toy marble with swirls inside and all. So I thought we should start a collection..... let's see your marbles folks.

    I've only saved 1 marble from throwing away a bottle of black CI. If I get enough, I hope to find a shooter. That's one that made the others fly out of the circle. Been many moons ago since I was playing marbles in the dirt. If you wanted to cheat while playing, use a metal ball bearing. But nobody cheated when playing marbles. :cool::mad:lollollol

    Yep carrying your bag of marbles was just part of life back then,I taught all my kids how to play and steelies were only used when all players agreed on it.
    But I had a shooter cats eye that my youngest now had .

    I heard they put a gold bead in five bottles and if you find one you get to tour the createx factory.
    Where they mix the resin by waterfall.

    Damn, now I got to paint more, just to see what I win. I'm starting the house tonight, when I get home from work. Can anyone recommend a good in-line paint heater to avoid flow problems??? And, what's a good adhesion promoter to use on the blue spruce in the backyard?

    It’s the freaky weird tunnel with spiralling skulls by Corey Saint Clair that I’m scared of.

    Haha, if you did that you know there would be an unexpected and unpleasant surprise waiting at the factory so you could learn an important life lesson LOL.
    Now I’m hearing “oompah loompah doopady do, we got the perfect reduction for you”

    I've never finished a bottle of paint that came with a stone. I normally add them myself and then I use faceted glass beads. Those are totally useless in a game of marbles.

    Some of mine have an agitator in the bottom and some done. I know I have marbles in the 4030 as I can see them lol. Now I’ll need to check which colours have one and which don’t.

    All of your wicked should. If it doesnt seem to have one then you likely haven't shaken enough to break it free. I thought only a few colors had them when I first picked some up.
