I found this fantastic globe on the clearance shelf at HomeGoods... It was damaged though. The two end caps on the orb were broken and the map was torn. Not a problem and actually Perfect for what I intended to do to it.
I brought it home and removed all of the map from the orb. I glued the end caps back on.
Then I primed it. Painted it black and then blue. I Painted it black first because I like then it was easier to paint blue... No streaks of white to come through.
Then over the course of a little more than two weeks I painted one leaf at a time until I covered the entire surface. Creating this beautiful design.
I primed the metal stand, painted it blue and then added some leaves, stripes and silver.
It really cane out quite nice. I am obsessed with it.
Took roughly 30 hours to Paint.
Measures: around 26 inches tall.
The orb is larger than a basket ball.
