I was purely copying the techniques outlined in Pat Smith’s Setting the Scene though I’m trying for a late fall snow look rather than the dead of winter look in his book.

Nicely done. I am about to do a winter mat myself, using Pat Smith's technique. He used calico, what did you use as cloth?

I bought a light canvas a little more expensive $10 per yard as I recall with a 60" width

BTW it took 4 tubes of white, and 1 tube of brown caulk to cover a 6 x 4 table.
