Day 39 The International Scott Centenary Expedition commemorative map.

Spent the afternoon measuring, measuring  and measuring.

The rope border needs to be fairly even because the mounting board will sit quite snugly next to it. The rope thickness and width plus the distance between the parchment and rope and other objects needs to  consistent.

Firstly I measure the distances for the lengths

Then I measure the widths of 10mm

Then I pencil,  and do the rounded edges

then I ink in the outline

then I shade

So more rope for now. Will show you the result of tonight’s work tomorrow.
