Daisy Arabesque Mat
Table Mat with Daisy Applique
This two-part surface is just the right size for a table mat. The elaborate daisy & scroll layer arrives unattached from the background layer allowing you to paint it prior to assembly, which results in crisp, clean lines. RB Clearly Elegant Stenciling Gel is necessary to assemble the layers.
Approximate (finished) size: 7.75" x 11.75".
Surface designed & created in the USA!
The coordinating stemware petticoat shown is sold separately. A set of four stemware petticoats and daisy mat are featured in Aug. 2013 PaintWorks magazine along with coordinating etched pitcher & glassware
Roclon has a fine texture weave that doesn't interfere with detailed painting the way a coarse canvas might. The only drawback is that it does have a linty surface which shows up in detailed paintings. I have found that using Primocoat™ hardens the lint and allows me to sand it away using a fine sanding pad leaving a beautifully prepared surface ready for any type of medium. I wouldn't use Roclon without the base that Primocoat™ provides. Once primed, Roclon is a terrific surface that doesn't curl the way some canvas is apt to do. Because the canvas readily absorbs the primer, a single coat is adequate.
