I could tell you a really complicated story involving rules of Google Science Fair… copyrights, opensource images… hatchets.. felled trees…
I will spare you.
To make a long story short, for my Google Science Fair movie, I had to use only content that I had created, but I need a world map, so I made my own.
I printed out a silhouette of a world map from the internet and used a ruler to make a grid on the map. Then I made a grid on watercolor paper to scale with the other grid. I used the boxes to help estimate where everything should go.
I carefully erased the grid and painted the landmasses with watercolor, and when that had dried I did the water.
Now I have my own watercolored world map! Very useful for movies.
I’m going to Europe day after tomorrow by the way- Paris, Brussels, Lisbon, Copenhagen, Nida (Lithuania), and Bologna. Expect lots of exciting posts coming soon.
