Hello! Elena here! Today I’ll show you how to use paints and gesso to make a real design thing from an ordinary school globe!
To begin with, I circled the borders of the continents with a volumetric marker. Because I’m going to paint over the whole globe.
I needed to keep the shape of the continents for later painting.
When the contour is completely dry, I covered the globe and the stand with several layers of gesso.
It created a rough surface, but I liked it so much.
As you can see the contours of the continents were visible, and I do not have to draw them myself!
Then I made the final coat of paint Fallen Angel for the oceans.
I wrapped the ball with cling film and painted the leg with paint Bad & Tatted
Metal gears are also painted on one side with black paint Bad & Tatted , and on the other covered with two layers of embossing powder
Black Forest Black by Lindy’s
Continents I painted with paint Bad Girl Gaudy
Added a bit of stamping
At the equator I stuck inspirational inscriptions are from 7 DOTs.
