This close-up mat has an imitation leather surface and a black rubberized, no-slip back or underside.
It is a convenient size for close-up work. At 9 1/2" wide and 7 1/2" deep it doesn't take up a lot of space on the table but provides a nice display / performing surface.
It is not spongy like many close-up pads, it is a classy looking little board that makes a world of difference on hard surfaces like glass. The non-slip backing keeps it in place and keeps your props under control.
