I bought this globe last weekend. Seen here. We just happened to be out, and I grabbed it for fun... Kinda got a thing for globes and maps.
This one is in French and has a metal base, so I figured it would be good for something!
I had some leftover chalk paint, and on a whim, just painted the globe.
The texture is cool, so I thought i might use chalk to bring out the mountains and other bumps on the globe. Could look cool. Grey is helping as usual.
With the ball done, the base needed a bit of colour. My first thought was perhaps something fluorescent.
After this weekend's visit of boys 7 yrs and under, I decided to do something a bit more classic (silver), and 'play' with the chalk instead. See the previous Part 2 here.
Also inspired by the boys' visit, and all of the talk of Star Wars, I did a quick sketch of the Death Star.
I used this cool shirt as my inspiration.
Not bad for 45 minutes of sketching.
Add a copper pot from this trip, and my teeth cast, and I think I like how it turned out.
