Did you have any problems with refection off the crystal ball ? I tried my projector on the same ball that you used and got a image on the ball and the wig head. Thanks

Bobzilla: here's how you fix the double image problem
The spirit ball is spray painted with a bunch of silver paint to make it look more magical, I guess. Take some paint thinner (actually, I had to use "thinner for metalizer," because regular paint thinner wasn't strong enough) and wipe off the flecks of paint that are in the front area of the globe (the part that looks clear).
If you look closely at my video, you can see that when Leota's mouth opens really wide, it actually had that double image on the lower part of the globe.

Hope that helps.

Really nice prop you made Mr_Chicken! Loved watching the video. This has me kicking myself for not picking up the spirit balls that I saw on sale at SpiritHalloween throughout this past Halloween season. This would have been a fun thing to work on leading up to next Halloween. BTW I thought your photos and how-to were great also. Thanks for taking the time to share and inspire!

Also have to say that I really love Madame Leota's "do" that you came up with.
