Before building rolling ball sculpture I drew mazes. I spent countless hours creating mazes in school – listening to the teacher while creating intricate paths with pencil on paper. I picked it up again in my late 20’s after I got married. My wife joined in on the creativity by coloring in the open spaces in the maze to bring out the picture.

I start with the picture I want tracing it onto the paper.  Then I use the maze paths to bring out the picture and fill in the page.

Once the maze is completed we scanned it into the computer and using Photoshop we’d edit and perfect all of the paths. Photoshop allowed us to keep the dark lines, and eliminate everything else, cleaning up the paths considerably. 

Still using Photoshop we’d go over the entire maze section by section to make sure there were no orphaned paths or tiny gaps in the paths. Finally we’d color in everything that was a maze path – revealing the final picture. 

ALL mazes are solvable – but very, very difficult. Good luck!
