Is there any video or any other tutorial that I can refer to or can someone help me with instructions on how to cover a styrofoam ball with fondant? I need to make a beach ball with multiple colored stripes and need some help.

Thank you,

I have done a few and this is how I do it:
1. coat the ball in thinned out piping gel.
2. Roll your fondant on the thicker side.
3. place the ball on an upside down bowl
4. cover the ball and start smoothing down from the top towards the bottom.
Usually there is extra fondant that is pleating at the bottom. I just cut that off and smooth like crazy!
