Maybe you didn't try "glass" "floats" as search terms?


There are no "secrets". It's all here.
Once you start reading and following the leads you get such info as:

"There is this gel you can get from "Micheals" called Glass Etch Bath."

"I drilled a hole (with a diamond head dremel bit"

"Go to a stained glass store and get a diamond bit there. You will want to use water on the bit when cutting the hole. Go slow when attempting. The knot on the glass would be the hardest place to cut through. The stress on a glass ball is everywhere."

"...local glass blowing shop. They sandblasted the outside giving it a wonderful glow when lit. If you have a local shop they might do it for you at a reasonable price. I paid nothing extra to have mine done."

There's more, much more.
