Desert Terrain Mat
#1
I built some Agyptian Terrain for an upcoming campaign of Blades and Heroes from both Greenstuff World

and Hirst Arts blocks

Now I need some ground to place them on.  What I wanted to do for quite some time is a flexible gaming mat.

I watched plenty of YouTube videaos on the topic, but the recently published video by the Terrain Tutor was the tip on the dare to give it a try.

Here are the components:

As fabric, I use painter fleece, the one I choose has a bottom of plastic sheeting, which should help keeping the acrylic and the colour on the fleece.

I pinned the fleece to the board with pins.

Then added one thin layer of acrylic.

This is how the mat looked after a second layer of acrylic. It took me about 1.5 tubes.

I then applied thinned PVA glue (1:1) and sprinkled on two grains of sand. Here is the first learning: When applying white PVA onto a white surface, tint it with something. I went with the reflection of light, and thought I got everything coated - when I tapped off the excess sand, there were some quite visible spare patches. I touched them up, but they are visible now as they are a bit higher than the rest...

After sealing the sand in with watered down PVA (1:6 + washing-up liquid) and letting this coat dry thoroughly, I stippled on a first coat of paint.
