We gettin down to some of the finer points.
"Indian Territory" is now scribed..."Boonsburo" is scribed with some fort pics..."OHIO RIVER" is penciled. Will be darkening some map river lines and adding more map details until I'm done,...it's the fun part now.
Lookin good Aaron!! You have talent.
You guys have seen me mention "map shading" and "letter shading",..this compared to previous pics should give you an idea what I'm after. I pretty much consider this little section here complete. Still a little smudgy but it'll clean up more later on. It should look much closer to our reference than before. I'll be adding more map details like hills..and river names,..etc next week...and hopefully all the map shading will be done.
Can't forget Ol' Green River,..had to take some artistic liberty's on the script due to the scale....river has had 1 pass of ink to rough it out a bit to see what I'm doing...will get shaded and first pass of ink on letters tomorrow. Adding details otherwise...maps full of cool stuff...just adding what I can hopefully done next week.
Thank you Feedman...it's been a journey.
Once the scribing is complete what kind of clearcoat or sealer do you use to seal it?
Johnson paste wax,..which also goes on heavily between inking/scribing sessions.....then at the very end a coat of Renaissance Wax. Been using that stuff for over a decade on lots of different things before many even new about it.

Sadly it looks like their future isn't looking to hot,..I just went to their site-
Looking Awesome Aaron, sad bout the company. Hope ya got a bunch in stock!
Enough to do me for a while...it is actually widely used by a variety of guys....I'm hoping surely they start back up sometime.
Been working in various details...here is "Kentucke River" penciled in and ready for the scribe tomorrow...might make an adjustment or 2 on the lettering but this is about how it will look.
Looks better than the map
