Background: At work for the past 10 years or so our mailroom lady has been collecting blue rubber bands on a golf ball core and it has slowly been accumulating to a very large ball. It currently weighs about 20lbs and is approximatly 10-11" in diameter. The elestics are getting dried out over time and we would like to preserve this huge ball of rubber.

Product I am seeking: I am looking for a sealing product that I can put on this ball that will remain flexible and somewhat clear. And even suggestions on how to seal this thing. would be appreciated.

Maybe PlastiDip would work.Hardware stores carry it. I think it's used mostly to encase tool handles. I bought the black, then decided I wanted the clear, which I haven't gotten yet. It may not have the "give" that you need, tho.

Maybe the guys who make custom bowling balls could embed your rubber ball into a clear bowling ball?
