Patriotic Wall Art | States of the USA
Beautiful 3D American Map Display and Patriotic Wall Decor
For those of you who enjoy reading all of the "gory details", here is how I make the American Map Display.
- 2 different size cutouts are made using professional grade 1/4 inch MDF (medium density fiberboard). The profiles are produced using a CNC router, cut to form with smooth even surfaces.
- The USA States cutouts are then primed to insure a professional, permanent vinyl adhesion. The edges are painted flat black to give the piece a slight shadow appearance.
- After priming, the 2 USA cutouts are then assembled using spacers between the 2 layers, which creates an intriguing 3D shadow effect.
- Special Permanent Adhesive Vinyl is then applied to the front surfaces of the cutouts, resulting in a permanent, smooth, seamless, colorful, no maintenance application. The rear wall art can be paint instead of vinyl, depending on your preferences.
- A gold cutout of your state is applied to the USA profile
- Two wood cleats are permanently glued to the back side of the cutout, which gives a varying 3D appearance on your wall depending on the direction of the room lighting. Screw eyes and string are attached to the top cleat for hanging.
The result is a beautiful, patriotic, one-of-a-kind USA wall art presentation. The varying placement and different background options result in a one-of-a-kind eye catching presentation. This is sure to be a conversation piece in your home or office.
