Hi everyone, after I asked you all for advice on paperclay, and got so many wonderful responses, I thought id fire away with another couple of things ive been pondering on.
1.Firstly, i have ordered some card tiles for the roof of the Sweeney house , lazy I know, I could have sat and cut them all myself but with so much to do I took the easy way out! Im hoping to have some left over and then if so, use them as flooring either on this or another project. I wondered if anyone had used card 'tiles' for flooring and if so, whats the best way to do it? Should I lay by using PVA, then paint, and then do you grout with anything as Im worried about it being too wet and spoiling the card if I grout. Or do you paint them first then lay? The tiles arnt dead square so will have gaps inbetween so how best to fill them being card?
Thats the first quandry
2.The second is how on earth do I make up the windows for the front of the shop. If you look at the pic on the last posting you will see the large black windows. None of my windows have anything in them so how to go about making up this style window. I thought about plain acetate but Id like the get the small pane effect , so any ideas? I need to get the windows in then run a rail with grubby lace curtains up.
Thankyou all in advance as i know youll all have great helpful tips.
