First find your world, They are every where from flea markets thrift stores, TJ Max and school supplies stores. I was nervous about spraying a globe that had been covered in paper because I didn’t want it to bubble. So its best to use three light coats of Rust-oleum paint and primer.
See that cracking!!! That happens when you put it on too thick and fast. People please learn from my mistake again this is not a project to do quickly. Lots of light coats and this wont happen . It is an easy fix though just a light sanding and reapply the paint.
Next is the scariest part for me. I hate my hand writing, I have dyslexia, and its a curved surface. I’m very self conscious about writing anything by hand. I’m mean look at this blog there are a million mistake and I have a computer to help me out LOL The saying I wanted to use is Enjoy the Journey, So take a big breath and a pencil and go for it. Enjoy
Not perfect but hey I’m ok with that. I love gold right now so I used my gold sharpie paint pen to trace over the pencil just know the pencil marks will erase after you are done outlining.
I wanted flowers on my globe but you could do polka dots, stripes, trucks and cars, flamingos hey the sky’s the limit.
Paint is your friend when you are decorating the globe. I just used craft paint but I loved the look of the pearl Martha Stewart Paint I used on the pink flower. This part took time because you can only do a little at the time. You should let each section dry before you rotate it around. So yes this took days for me, because I don’t manage my time well and I would pick up my brush every time I walked by my office.
After you get all the flowers painted I just added detail with my sharpies. I loved to outline the flowers add stems and little extras. This was just about the easiest part. Supper easy a little time consuming and your own work of art. Make sure you autograph this with a date so people will know how fabulous you are!! Enjoy the journey!
