Today, I'll show you my shingle process for the roof.
The shingles are simple pine shingles. I used my own dying process to color them.
The shingles go into a bath of 1/4 paint color and 3/4 water. Some are darker than others. I did this by putting less water in the dying bath. I used a mix of brown and black paint- twice as much brown as black.
I staggered the shingles.
To get the shingles to cover the ridge, I apply hot glue to the back of a shingle.
Then put it on the ridge and slowly bend it over the ridge.
Put the next shingle halfway over the previous shingle.
Go to the halfway point of the roof.
And start from the other side working towards the middle.
