Gathering the equipment. Mostly sourced from the pound shop & Wilkos' test pots. The most expensive piece was the mat itself at £4.99 Screwfisx. This is one of those covers that you put on the floor or over furniture when painting. It has a cotton weave on a plastic back. It needed a bit of ironong.
|Step 2: I tacked the mat to a board to keep it flat.|
|Step 3: Measuring out the playing surface 3' x 2.75' (This was determined by the mat itself.)|
|Step 4: I covered the playing surface in builders caulk, spreading it out with the scraper.|
|Step 4: WIP|
|Completed base layer.|
|Step 5: Undercoat Grey|
|Step 6: Wash of 'Granite' Tester Pot|
|Step 7: Second wash of 'Natural Stone'|
|Step 8: Dry Brush with 'Midnight White'|
Thanks for reading and Happy Easter to you all.
