Fidget Spinners Done!

OK So I completed the painting and gluing of the bearings on the three fidget spinners. The two not of my design spin nicely. My batman one is unbalanced and a little bit larger than what my fingers are capable of spinning freely so it pretty much is constantly touching my skin as it spins so it slows down rather quickly compared to the other two. The fact that the bearings are unbalanced means I can't just let it spin on one finger as it will just fall off if I lift up one finger. Hey, it is my first one that I took the shape and placed the bearings. So I learned what I did wrong and if I do another batman I will tweak the design to make it be able to spin and not touch the skin and be balanced so that I can spin it on a single finger.

There is a video of all three being spun and you can see what they are and believe it or not I do find the act spinning them entertaining. I don't know what it is but it does keep your mind busy and I don't sit there fidgeting or shaking my leg.
