Pet Terrain Project Part I
I've been thinking about using these big 2'x 9' sheets of I don't even know what at Home Depot. But they are like $20 a sheet for 1 of them and I think I would need 4 of them for what I want. Plus I would have to get them cut to the sizes I want.
Then I remembered Wal-Mart sells these kids mats in 2'x 2' sections. a pack of 4 of them is only $8 or something. So I bought a bunch and decided to see if these worked. If they did I could build modular boards with roads and stuff. The trick would be if the spray paint sticks to it without cracking.
Even the texture of the mats gives it a cobblestone sort of look.
My buildings aren't painted, but you get the idea. The only problem is the spray paint costs more then the mats. It takes a lot to cover these things.
Next I will try to flock one of these bad boys...and then try to put roads on them. If they don't work out I at least have my 4' x 4' city board.
