Splinter padding

Recommended Posts

Umm.  Er.  What do you mean by splinter padding?

Splinter mats were kapok filled canvas as far as I know, but I'm not sure how they were secured. Perhaps careful perusal of period photos would supply some clues?

Milliput:

Roll out a piece, using a piece of plastic or whatever on either side to get a uniform thickness and give everything a dose of talc so that it doesn't stick (particularly what you're using to roll out on).  Make yourself a template for the size of mat you want and cut around it.  Then give it some indentations so that it looks like fabric (as opposed to a hard surface).
