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?
Lofty heights and luscious stained glass. You’ve gotta love the Gothic era!
