Re: Canvas roof?

Ah, one of Chuck Donaldson's pics
(www.somewherewest.com ...lots of excellent shots)

Canvas or tar paper was commonly applied to wooden
roofs, and nailed at the edges. An effective modeling
method is to take tissue paper and "paint" it on with
flat black paint (Testor's works well). Gives the look
of tarpaper/canvas without much hassle. Run the paper
over the edge of the roof, trim it and use a pin or
needle dipped in a rust-colored paint to give the
appearance of rusty nails.
