How to make wood shingle roof and paint it.
I make Wood shingle from paperboard. This is not fast way but roof looking good and very detailed.
Cut slices of paperboard and make Wood shingle. All parts not need be same size. Old time wood shingle self-made, and were not exactly the same size. This will facilitate a little bit of your work.
Then i use universal glue to draw the shingles. If you make old roof as i do this job . its not necessary to use a ruler. You can attach the shingles handheld . Old wood shingle move little. but if make new wood shingle roof its better use ruler.
Next it’s time to paint roof. I use neutral grey.
Next step is add Citadel earthshade. thats give nice shadows .
Final step is drybrushing roof whit lifecolor weathered wood set. This two color UA717 AND ua718 give very nice color . Wood shingle looks like dry and old wood. I love to use lifecolor paint. Paint does not make cover the trace so yuo can paint very detailed roof.
