I would love to know what would be the best method of applying polymer clay to round globes or eggs.  I want to completely cover them with a sheet of clay.  I want to make sure that the clay thickness is even and prevent air pockets under the clay.  I'm working on some clear glass round globe vases.  Thanks in advance for any tips.  If anyone has a tutorial let me know.

For a tutorial you could try Leigh's Jack-O-Lantern Glass. There's some cane stuff but it also shows how to cover a glass with clay. Might help...
