I recently finished a wargaming mat (4 by 8 feet that rolls up neatly) for a show in a few weeks time.

It is made using a plastic backed canvas (drop sheet for painting) and with a sand/acrylic adhesive paste on top (then decorated with drybrushing and static grasses). I painted rivers and I think it will be good enough for the day. However I am thinking about potentially using a varnish on top on the rivers to make it look better – key issue is that it needs to be flexible, i.e. to be able to roll up without cracking (too much). With the show two weekends away I do not have too much time to experiment on my own. But would be interested to know if any of you had any experience of this. I was thinking Liquitex Gloss Varnish or Modge Podge (although the tackiness worries me).

What Mike said, works a treat!

Thank you, I went with the Liquitex Gloss, looks glossy enough. Let us see how it works when I roll it out again next week at the show!
