Paint (Oceans, Continents, Latitude/Longitude Markings, Titles, Personal locations)
Tracing paper (optional)
PREPARE THE GLOBE : First, get a globe. You can use an inexpensive globe but it’s best to find one that has raised continents, or you have to trace the continents first.
Mask off the stand and hardware
Spray globe completely with primer
Trace continents (you may need to trace continents before priming if your continents are not raised)
Option to use tracing paper and transfer tracing to globe
Paint oceans & continents
Mark the lines for longitude and latitude
Lettering the continents & oceans
Special markings for personalization tip: (you can use chalkboard paint for continents and oceans add temporary items)
HOW SHOULD WE ADD OUR PERSONAL HISTORY INFORMATION? Family origins, special places etc. Can use chalk (if using chalkboard paint) or use a metallic paint to create circles or rectangles around places. Consider using dotted lines for contrast.
