Water-Resist Map Timelapse

After my last water-resist map experiment, I decided to make one with finer lines and brighter colors. I took photos after each step of painting and drawing masking lines to show the process.

The last photo is of the almost-completed map with the yellow masking fluid still on. After removing it, the finished map looked like this (as hung on the wall at First Friday):

I was going to add some pen lines afterwards, but the piece ended up being so colorful that I thought they might get lost. Next time I'll tone it down a little bit more, so there's more of a tonal difference between the river and the land space.


  1. Emily,

    Very, very nice! Excellent job!

    Have a great week,

  2. Thanks, Brian! See you at the Burren!
