With the globe free of its stand, carefully look to see which half (top or bottom, or in this case north or south) is in the best condition.

Carefully open your globe along the equator. Use the razor blade here if necessary.

Taking care not to spray any of the globe’s outside map, spray several light coats of your spray paint on the inside. Let it dry thoroughly.
