[Art_beyond_sight_educators] Tactile globe - thinking out loud

I have gotten my hands on a few small globes and am in the process of making them
tactile (hopefully). So if anyone has done this before or has any ideas about
it would appreciate any feedback.

The globes are approximately 15 inches (34 cm) in circumference. About the size of a softball.
Am starting to paint over the continents with a white glue (like Elmer's glue) to . Will perhaps have
several layers so that it is easier to distinguish, and perhaps a textured paper after that. And thought
to use a string/thread for the Equator etc.

Have thought this could also be done with a large globe but like the idea of a smaller globe.

Any ideas?
