    Slags and Handmades need a facelift

    These slags and handmades are in rough shape. One handmade is so beat up that I cannot even tell what the center might be. I wonder if it could be blasted with a torch and made so that it would be clear. I realize it might not be round, but it's a shame to just trash it. Some of the handmades would still be good enough as placeholers. Any suggestions for bringing life back into these?

    I would just put them in a vase with water, You could buy mint or close too it for what a trip through the torch would cost

    Jayne, Curious what you ended up doing with this bunch. I have a small box full too. If you outlined they were damaged, wonder if there would be any market for them. I can cull other dinged up marbles a lot easier than these.

    I haven't done anything with them yet. I have an idea for something, which I will share later, once I follow through.

    I personally have lots of damaged german handmades. I keep them in a gumball machine. They might be beat up but they still display pretty well. Would possibly be interested if the price is right.... I would love to fill up my gumball machine.
