Progress! Real, actual progress!

I painted five globes on the East-facing mural wall yesterday.  You may have seen my live twitter updates as I updated the photos to my flickr account.

My stencil setup worked!

The process:

  1. Print out globe outlines on transparencies.
  2. Project globes onto wall.
  3. Trace globes with sharpie onto 15 mil plastic sheeting.
  4. Cut out land masses, leaving “bridges” in the material for strength.
  5. Fold up plastic sheeting and drive to site.
  6. At stencil site, spray plain circles that will serve as oceans.
  7. Unfold stencils, affix into place with tape and spray adhesive – very effective for smaller, detailed cuts.
  8. Spray paint!
