INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Apply a coat of Wood Reclaim to the entire globe and sand down to a smooth finish. (This may take several coats. The goal is to completely smooth out the surface so the vertical lines running down the globe are non-existent.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Dis-assemble the globe. Paint the entire frame in Serene.
