20x Tile and a half tilesmade from compressed fibre board.  These tiles are for use with individual roof tiles or roof tile strips made from the same material and are used to finish the end of alternate rows to create a straight edge to rows of staggered tiles.  The tiles should be glued into position on the dolls house roof using PVA adhesive and then painted with a slate or terracotta clay tile colour using suitable matt emulsion or acrylic paints.  The finished tiles can be further enhanced by adding shading to the individual tiles and finishing with a clear matt varnish.

Tile Size
Tiles are 30mm wide for use with 20mm tiles. (1:12 scale).  These tiles can also be used with 16mm roof tiles, bit will need to be trimmed to size when fitting. 1:24 scale tiles are 15mm wide.

- Fast and easy to apply - Simply stick the tiles into position with PVA adhesive or double sided tape.

- Easily cut to size using scissors or a craft knife.

- Finish the ridge with individual tiles, lead flashing or add optional half round ridge tiles.

- Choice of finish - Paint with a colour of your choice and add as much shading and detail as you wish.

Recommended Application and Finishing Method
Starting at the bottom edge of the roof glue the first tile strips into position. Separately available 'tile and a half' tiles can be used to finish the ends of alternate rows in a straight line.  Working up towards the ridge glue further strips into position ensuring that each row is overlapped by about 5mm and the tiles are aligned / staggered correctly. Tip: Draw several horizontal lines along the roof to help ensure the tile strips are aligned correctly..

Once all the tile strips  have been glued into position they can be painted using a suitable colour matt emulsion paint (small sample pots from DIY stores are ideal) or acrylic paints. When dry shading can be added if required using acrylic paints. Using this method it is quite easy to create tiles of varying shades and even add weathering effects which will greatly enhance the finished roof tile effect. Finally a coat of clear matt varnish can be added if required to protect and seal the finished roof tiles.

Further tools and materials recommended include: A suitable wood / cardboard adhesive (PVA) or double sided tape, a sharp craft knife or scissors, Paint / Matt Varnish. (Not supplied).

Great

- 19th December 2015

Already reviewed these after arrival, but got to up it to 5*. Got a basic cottage, first house. Amazing the difference, it looks stunning. Easy to use, and if they would be a darker or more grey I'd leave them as they are. The cut marks make them look...
