I had one of those serendipitous purchases at the weekend while in the Aladin's Cave that is my local Ikea. We were out as a family shopping (read: dragging the poor kids around after us) when I found this item in the rug section. Stopp - with two P's - is a very thin rubber anti-slip mat to go under rugs on laminate flooring. I picked up a two meter roll for just £2.50 so I have enough to last me for many projects.
I have bought other, thicker, varieties before (the last one will go under my game mat to stop it sliding of the table!) but I have been looking for a thinner alternative to apply to the underside of some of my terrain. In particular I have a range of hills (no pun intended) that needed a little extra grip to the base.
|This rubberised material is very thin but provides more than enough grip for terrain items like hills|
|I liberally coated the underside of the hill with a good quality PVA then spread the Stopp across it evenly.|
