That's why I love this new "blackboard paint" that you can get for your walls (or furniture even!) at home. It comes in all different colors. My son has a sky blue *flat* wall in his room and another that is grass green painted right on the "acoustic" textured drywall. He calls it his "outside" wall because it looks like grass and feels like a sidewalk.
Anyway he can draw on it all he likes and there's no problem with clean up when *he* decides he doesn't want it anymore.
And you can transfer the image to paper easily just by patting it on the wall!
Heyyyyy... maybe I could use that to make a new map...
Darn! Don't you hate it when REAL LIFE gets in the way of more important stuff! I am looking at your links to mountains tuts. Thanx for posting.
Hey! Welcome to my world. Maps are everywhere! (And faces, animals, monsters, and other things, too, sometimes.)
I got in trouble once when I was little because I penciled in map symbols for towns in between the bumps on the sculpted dry wall in my room. Then I labeled them with names and connected them together with roads, as I carefully weaved through the valleys and around hills, following rivers and climbing up on to high plateaus, and so on... As I remember, I was forced to scrub the walls as punishment. Which totally ruined a really nice map!!
