Melanie B’s Mixed Media Mat is another Melanie B. Must-Have Tool for all of your arts & hobbies! 
• Made from high quality silicone, the Melanie B’s Mixed Media Mat is a multi-function craft mat that is non-stick, waterproof, and heat-resistant. Get yourself a versatile work surface such as this Mixed Media Mat! This white silicone mat has a rectangular work surface and a palette of twelve square wells. The mat is durable, heat-resistant, and waterproof with a non-stick and non-slip design. Having this mat around will make it easy to clean up, and the surface beneath it will remain protected. Use it with all of your favorite mediums including inks, sprays, paints, hot glue, heat embossing, and clay!
{Melanie B. also has a second mat that she uses with her mini 1:24 scale model sets, because the glues won't stick, she can separate the tiny parts for the components in the 12 small openings, and then she works on the room in the main section. It is PERFECT for model buiders!)
• This amazing, super thick silicone mat boasts the following features:
  • Non-stick
  • Waterproof
  • Thicker than most silicone mats on the market!
  • 12 palette wells for mixing paints and holding accessories.
  • Approximate 9”x12” recessed work area to mix your paints or place your artwork - whichever option makes you happy!
  • Has a full border around work area to retain media and liquids.
  • When you use it with watercolor paints, you can leave your paints on it, allow them to dry, spritz them later to activate them, and reuse them. No wasted paints! (Although watercolor paints may stain your mat, it’s so worth it! See my cleaning hack at the below.)
  • The non-slip back allows the mat to stay in place during use.
  • Releases most paints (acrylics! woohoo!) and glues easily when dried.
  • Perfect for inks, sprays, paints, hot glue, heat embossing, and clay!
  • It's cold and heat resistant from -49ºF to 446ºF (-45ºC to 230ºC).
  • It's easy to clean with dampened lint-free cloth or oil-free cleaning wipe.
  • Store flat in between uses.
Warning:
  • Some types of colored media/pigments may stain your mat. (Watercolor paints will stain.) Staining does not change the properties of the mat. 
  • This isn’t a craft mat designed for cutting. Avoid direct contact with tools with sharp edges such as pencils and knives. They will damage your mat.
  • Oil based products (including gel plates and some cleaners) can chemically damage the mat causing unwanted swelling as it absorbs into the silicone.
• MELANIE B'S CLEANING HACK FOR STAINS•
  1. I have been cleaning my silicone mat by combining hydrogen peroxide and baking soda and mixing it into a thick paste.
  2. I apply it all over the stains, use an old toothbrush to gently scrub it into stubborn stains with hot water, and leave it overnight or for 6-8 hours.
  3. I rinse that mixture off, and it has removed almost all (if not all) of the watercolor paint stains I have on my mat!
