World Map Mat

World Map Mat

In this project I made a painting on a wooden strips mat of 90x60cm bought in a DIY commerce, and using our world map stencil in a big size.

The ribbon bordering the mat will do as a framework, I protect it with masking tape to keep it free of paint.

I paint the entire surface with antic-white chalk paint. The chalk paint adheres without preparing or priming the surface and gives a nice matte finish. It also dries very fast.

In a few minutes the paint is dry, we can accelerate the drying using a heat gun.

Once the paint is dry, I place the stencil using reposicionable adhesive so it does not move and creates crisp edges.

Now all I have to do is apply the paint using a stencil brush, in my case I chose several colors mixing them together.

In brief Ill upload a video tutorial of this project, you will see how the projects has been done step by step.
