Good advice Fram. I was tempted to do just that, but wanted to hold off and do things a bit at a time 'cause I go overboard.

Basically I lack confidence with the bigger pieces, so doubly appreciate the feedback!  :D

Lots of dry brushing, but lots of fun!

Great results!

Did you have much shrinkage, in length or width, of the canvas after applying the caulk?

When I painted my very large (6' x 24') artist's canvases (3 of them, two sea, one land) for a pirate game some years ago, I had a couple inches of shrink on the width and a LOT of shrinkage on the length.  Piece was far too big to 'nail' down while painting.

You have to nail it down or otherwise clamp it to avoid the shrinkage. I did the same thing as Mr. Peabody and had no shrinkage.

Really like your mat.
I have played around with calk.
Have made much smaller ones than you have made.
Looking forward to making larger ones.
Thanks for the instructions on how you did yours.
