Celebrate the arrival of a New Baby with this Birth Place Star Shaped Map Printed on Wood, featuring a location map, name, date, and weight.
This personalised star shaped map artwork printed on wood makes a perfect gift for any new parent, or a lovely gift for a first Mother's Day. The star shaped map can be centred on any international location and as it covers just a small distance - approximately 0.5x0.5 miles. It is beautifully detailed. The overlapping personalised heart has room to feature all of the baby's vital statistics including name/s, weight, date and time of birth.
The transfer print technique I use works best with black and white images, giving the artwork a gorgeous timeless look. All the wood I use is from sustainable sources - wood grain shows through the printed image to enhance the beauty of the map. The natural variations of colour and grain add to the character of the handmade nature of the item, making each map a truly unique ‘one off’.
You can choose to have the wood colour left as it is or to be given a light whitewash of paint before printing. The whitewash gives the finished article a brighter appearance as there is more contrast between the background and the map print.
This item is small enough to stand on a shelf or mantelpiece but can also be hung on the wall. It is supplied with a concealed hanger for easy hanging from a picture pin or nail. I also offer this item framed - in a simple unglazed white or black wood profile. You may prefer this as it gives the artwork a contemporary style and adds to the aesthetic of the finished print. Simply select this through the options menu when placing your order.
Materials Used: Birch Plywood, copy of map, acrylic paint, acrylic medium, matt varnish, metal hanger.
