Decorating My Home Town With Gigantic Maps!

Decorating My Home Town With Gigantic Maps!

I wanted to share the delightful experience of installing this massive watercolour map on the entrance wall of Sandwick Bay Candles, a cozy little shop in the heart of Stornoway.

At first, I was a bit hesitant that I could finish the job, but I love a challenge! Luckily my past experience as a graphic designer had taught me how to set up such a large file ready to print and cut. I had also applied vinyl decal on cars before, so this was a walk in the park.

I started off by putting gold acrylic on the wall, just like how I do with my prints. It was pretty awesome to work on such a huge canvas. Usually, I finish up my paintings with a sprinkle of gold dust, but this time gravity wasn't on my side.

The dust wouldn't just fall on the wall like it does on paper. So, I had to go on a hunt for this big pipet thing. I used it to suck up the gold dust and then blew it onto the wall. It was a bit tricky, a lot of fun!

 

Next time you find yourself in Stornoway town, make sure to visit the Sandwick Bay candle shop and take a moment to explore my gigantic map.

Thank you Megan for inviting me to do this! Cheers to community, creativity, and the simple joys that make our hometowns truly special!
