    i got this tip thanks to Martin M. I washed the blue globe then worked on the Southern Hemisphere to practice. Only four land masses of size. I covered the sea quite thickly with Elmers school glue and used a pencil, or wife’s kebab stick would do, to push glue into awkward places like Indonesia’s islands north of Australia. Let glue dry overnight then hung hemisphere on a rotating string and sprayed. When dry, 10 minutes in sun and peel off in one coat the dried glue. Works a treat, just need to practice a bit more but the system is perfect. Maybe I can touch up with spray paint on a brush. All the work is in applying the glue.

    Thanks. I’m now doing northern hemisphere in stages. Very fiddly work around Europe and Central America. I watered down the glue a trifle and painted it on. Taking a break in The Mediterranean! In Kaiser’s world!

    I've never been brave enough to just try peeling the mask off, assuming it'd lift the paint in unwanted places or ways.
    I always just scuffed the paint where the glue was so a soak in water could get through to dissolve the glue.
