I like the cracks, I would try to work around them. Possibly staining lightly and then sealing real well with a clear sealer until all the cracks are filled, and the surface is smooth.
Hoping all the cracks showed up.
I personally would keep the cracks.

You covered a sphere (ball?) with the adhesive brandname "Seal Bond"? Is this a coating over something else? Billie

Yes it is a cement ball that I covered with seal bond and it is all coming off.

Maybe I missed something in another post.
Any details you can supply help.
Is this a sphere that you made? Was it cleaned and flaking paint removed? "Seal Bond" is the manufacturer, what product did you use and why? Why not a mortar mix or cement resurfacer? Details, details???? Billie

What was the weather like? Hot? Maybe the ball expanded and caused the cracking. Just trying to figure out why the cracks. Did you keep it misted while it was "curing"? Maybe it dried, rather than cured.
