Marauders Map by twinklestarr-chan Marauders Map by twinklestarr-chan
Scans of the Marauders Map I made for our Marauders photoshoot. This thing is a beast. 6 feet long total, the entire thing was tea-dyed and drawn with brown felt pens by hand. The words around the boarders say "Maravdere Est, Avdere Est" except on the Greenhouses and in the lake.

Sorry the scans aren't that well put together, it doesn't all fit in my scanner. The dungeons are on there, before anyone asks. They're under the Hogwarts crest. And this map is based in the Marauders timeline, that's why the teachers names are not what we'd normally see. Also, I know that it's not entirely accurate to the official version, but that one makes absolutely no sense to me at all. I know the castle is huge, but really? It's not that huge.

For the full size view please download.

I've already had a few people ask me about it, so if anyone is interested, I'm willing to make custom versions of these, please send me a note if you're interested.

My Marauders cosplay group is planning to make a Marauders Map (I'm Prongs) and this is definitely going to be one of our main resources.

Since you said it's about 6 feet long, I'm assuming it must be several sheets of paper together...how did you go about sticking them together?

Brilliant job, it looks fantastic.

It's actually from a roll, I got a roll of 18 inch by 30 foot paper (they sell it at craft stores) and cut it to 6 feet, and then folded it in half so it was 9 inches wide, that gave me the weight I needed. Then I tea-stained it and flattened it while it was drying (I tea-stained it in a shoe box and put paper towels between each layer so they wouldn't stick, then put a few phone books on top). Once it was dry, I could write on it and even erase pencil from it without messing it up. Hope that helps!

Thank you!

I'm working on plans for my own Marauders' Map, but I'm using the compiled information on Harry Potter Lexicon to make sure I include everything mentioned in the books, and the number of layers I have to make is... vast... so I think I'm going to have to use really thin paper to keep the bulk down, so I won't be able to tea stain it without weakening it and then the ink would bleed...
Goodness, it's all getting complicated. Congratulations on yours, it looks very successful!

Thanks!! The trick to tea staining is to do all of it at once and fold it and press it while it's still wet under a heavy book (like a text book) and then let it dry for 2 days like that. Then it'll be flat enough and dry enough that you can write on it.

I think by the time I'd finish the last of it the bits I did first would already be starting to dry curly, and I might not have enough textbooks! Thankyou for the advice though, I still might tea-stain in the end, but I'll have to do it a little at a time...

If you fold as you go, it won't be able to curl. And in order to tea stain, you don't have to entirely soak the paper, what I used was a little bit of tea on a sponge brush and just quickly brushed over the entire thing, folding as I went, that way I could put the weight on one bunch at a time. The weight will definitely help keep the folds as well as keep it from curling.

That's true, I do need a way to keep the folds as tight as possible. Doesn't the paper stick together if it's pressed when wet?

It's been a while since I made mine so I'm trying to remember exactly the process I used. I believe putting a sheet of waxed paper or something like it between the pages as you fold it will keep them from sticking. The folds will stay tight with the weight on them, so you don't have to worry about that. Mine stays folded up to pocket size on it's own now. Also remember, you don't want it soaked, you just want it slightly wet, any amount of tea will stain it, you don't have to get it so wet that it drips.

Me and my friend are looking at our own map right now, and we can't really understand what that means? Or why that's on the map..

It's actually "Maraudere est audere", the "U"s just look like "V"s, it means "Marauders are bold" in latin.

Great work !
Is it possible to have a scan for each floor ? I'm looking for a map to help me in a Harry Potter Role Play (true role play, with dices and paper and real people :D), and well, that could really help me to modelize the castle and the places my players are going to visit.

Thanks in advance for your response, and keep up with the good work !

That really is sort of a scan of each floor. The way I visualize it, the Great Hall is in the center and as tall as the rest of the buildings, then the staircases are to the sides of the great hall and just go up from there.

Paper. It's double layered so it's a bit stiffer than muslin.
