New commisioned Game Matt in Progress

Using green Felt material, bit over 4 x 6 feet in size. The indomitable Kel Seal brushable caulking is being mixed with Very Dark Green craft paint that I bought on sale from Micheals Crafts.
So here is the work in progress. The fold in the center is the middle point of the board, with 3 feet to either side. I'm trying to spread just enough Kel seal to smear into the felt to make sure its worked in and then turn it the shade of colored green I have mixed it to rather than "buttering" it on as I have in the past.

Flocking, I scattered colored bits of coarse cut turf around first, then pour heaps of flocking on the entire smeared area, pull out the trust rolling pin and work it over. Let dry for a couple hours. Then Lift and let the excess pour down slope, tap the back to shake more off. Leave it alone till the entire surface is completed, then spritz heavily with diluted PVA glue, let dry over night.

Any Thin spots, just brush on some more mixed kel seal and hit with more flocking, press and PVA it.
