Klenshyttan - Roof shingles
This article was published Oct 23, 2016.
Today I started adding the "shingles". The paint is still wet on the pictures, but will be complete flat when dry. The paint I used is a mix of 80% orange and 20% brown, then later when applied I dipped the pencil with a few drops of red now and then to get more variation, not all roofs are brand new and exact the same colour.. Important: always make sure you are using flat colours, else add extra flat agent. I used Tamiya acrylics here.
This was the first time I did use a ready-made roof shingle sheet in HO scale, I always worked in bigger scales before when doing this. I realized today when I was about to lose second batch from the sheets, that actually some release agent would be handy.. I guess washing liquid in water before adding glue would do it.
