Work in Progress – Zuzzy mat

Dan bought some Zuzzy mats last year, and didn’t take them with him to Oz.  He told me to use them, so I’ve started painting up the 6′ x 4′ Despoiled Reaches as a desert to use with the Flames of War Arab-Israeli stuff.  I’m not doing much painting at he moment, but occasionally I’m adding a bit of colour to this mat to try and get it finished.  Here’s the progress so far:

You can see that I have put down one colour, the Burnt Sienna, and have begun the Burnt Umber.  I’m planning on washing the whole thing in black, then dry brushing a Pale Sand/Burnt Sienna mixed colour over the top.

Here is a close-up.  I initially put a wash of each base colour down in an attempt to limit the amount of gray coming through in the cracks.  This was a fail.  It is particularly noticeable where the two colours meet.  Hopefully a black wash and the dry brushing should obscure this.
