Hello and welcome back.
So after building the Mansard roof with plywood, I had to think how to make it look like zinc. After making a research on Google pictures, I decided to glue thin strips of balsa at regular intervals.
After hiding the screws, I painted a sheet of drawing paper in grey, and cut 3 strips of paper.
Then I slowly glued them with latex glue, making sure not to tear them with my nail when I covered the strip of wood. That was pretty long to do but I was quite happy with the result.
Finally I clued the cornice, aged it and added strips of paper around the window.
and here is the result:
Now I have to age the chimney, and aged the roof a little bit as rusted zinc really looks that color. Though I'd like it to look a little older but I am scared as this is just paper and it won't accept any errors. Wish me luck for tomorrow!
[In Thailand, there are many stray cats and they have a very difficult life. Here is one who visits us (my cat and I) every time I work outside. He is wild and I can't get near him but he loves to watch me work. Of course he knows that when he comes home, he will get free lunch. Here is his picture:
