Up-cycled Gazing Ball

I found this globe on the side of the road, it looks like it came off a street lamp or something. It’s plastic and yellowed and pretty ugly.

Globe before

I wanted to make it into a gazing ball with this mirror spray paint, but you have to paint the inside of a glass object to get the mirror effect.

Since my object is neither clear or glass, it came out look like a polished silver ball. It has some reflection but I want more. I’ll try this project again when I come across another globe object in glass.

Globe after
