Splodge Away Mat Review

So I've been using the 8x8 Splodge away mat for about a week now I've used it with my brayer (which was still in the box as I couldn't get on with it before), and with my blending tool. I like the fact the Splodge mat is white so you can see the true colour of the inks and it really smooth for brayering.
I used my distress inks and stamped colour over the mat, the colour blended perfectly with my brayer and blending tool. I found this especially useful as I could tone down some of my brighter inks. 

I've also used 2 different colour distress inks (fire brick red and antique linen) light on one side dark on the other and used the brayer to create a 2 toned background, pictured below,  the stamp is designed by Sue Dix from Personal Impressions.

I have also used my mica misting sprays on the mat to get different effects and they clean off really easily.
As far as cleaning was concerned it was a breeze, just spritz with water and wipe dry. Oh and don't panic (I did) if you get archival ink on your mat, it will come off, just used a stamp cleaner (I used the one made by Ranger)

So to conclude the Splodge Mat does everything it claims, its a great product that is essential to any crafter.
