Vintage Victorian

Having the embroidery section of my shop sell out completely the other week was a bit of a motivator to get this lot finally photographed and listed:

These maps are based on a reconstructed Victorian London map, and so show a lot of familiar streets with slightly less familiar landmarks. The original map is beautifully painted, so to try and emulate this I used watered down fabric paint to slightly tint the calico and give the maps an aged, faded look. Hopefully it works well!
