Mythical Agyptian Terrain Mat

This is how the mat looked after a second layer of acrylic. It took me about 1.5 tubes.

I then applied thinned PVA glue (1:1) and sprinkled on two grains of sand. Here is the first learning: When applying white PVA onto a white surface, tint it with something. I went with the reflection of light, and thought I got everything coated - when I tapped off the excess sand, there were some quite visible spare patches. I touched them up, but they are visible now as they are a bit higher than the rest...

After sealing the sand in with watered down PVA (1:6 + washing-up liquid) and letting this coat dry thoroughly, I stippled on a first coat of paint.
