I'm wanting to re-create the Animal Kingdom Lodge Door Mat similar to the pin that Disney released. I figure I could easily re-draw the design with a vector graphics program and then size it correctly for the door mat I will use and print out the patterns for painting. Since I'm new to this type of crafting, what is the best paint and "sealant" to use on a door mat so it doesn't fade or rub off too quickly? Or is it better to "dye" the carpetted door mat and if so, how do I stay in the lines so it doesn't bleed out or is this even a possibility? Thanks for your help and suggestions!

The following link has several types of mat projects shown on it, you might get some ideas on what will work from them.

Thank you! Those are most helpful! Guess I should stop watching the show and actually check their website for projects!
