Undersized Urbanite Update

So, I’ve actually been working on it.  I’ve tried my hand at doing paperclay stone and it turned out ok.  You can see my efforts above.  I still need to clean it up a bit and paint it, but I’m pretty satisfied and liked working with the paperclay for the most part.  There was a lot of trial and error and some things I would do differently next time, but I think paperclay is going into my repertoire.

The problem I have now is that I’m unsure what to do with the roof.  I’m considering a couple options:

1. More Paperclay!

I’d eventually like to try making a roof in paperclay like this Rik Pierce creation for Sally Wallace.

Pros:  Still have a lot of paperclay left.

Cons:  More trial and error, may be more time consuming.

2.  Traditional wooden shingles

Pros:  I already have a bag and I can paint to look like slate.

Cons:  Very time consuming.

3.  A Moss Roof

Pros:  Quick and easy to do.  Already have some bags of moss.

Cons:  Not sure how it will hold up over time.  Not entirely sold on how it looks either.

Opinions and suggestions welcome!  So what do you all think?
