3D Map -Phase 3

I have finally gotten around to painting the background on the map -and quite pleased with it. Take a look.

J'ai finalement peint le fond de mon petit project de carte -et pas si mal, je dois dire. Ca me plait. Regardez un peu.

3D Map -Phase 2

Ok, here Phase 2 of my little 3D map project.

The entire map is covered with brown industrial paper towel:
First brush on water diluted Elmer's glue, the apply the paper towel, and finally recoat the towel with enough glue to soak through. The paper towel is molded carefully to keep the design of the map.

Once dry, apply a good coat of white gesso over the whole thing.

3D Map -Phase 1

Something I am having fun doing right now. It's a map of my home town done in 3D format.
The backing is a piece of masonic I happen to have laying around.

Steps so far:

1. paint the masonite board white to clean it up.
2. google the map, project it onto the board and trace it in pencil.
3. roll up pages of an old phone book, cut and glue onto the "roads."

I use a different roll size to represent smaller country roads versus major roads. Plus it adds variety.
