1x Decorative roof tile strip measuring 440mm x 25mm x 1mm approx.   Decorative tiles can be used in conjunction with standard rectangular roof tiles (16mm width) to create added decorative features. 

These tile strips are made from the same compressed fibre board as our individual roof tiles and tile strips.  The tile strips are precisely cut with a slight gap berween each tile and slightly irregular front edge giving a very good impression of individual roof tiles.  The tile strips 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.

Coverage
Each tile strip measures 444mm x 25mm (17.5" x 1") approx and is designed to be overlapped by a minimum of 5mm.  Coverage quoted for 1:12 scale tiles ..1:24 scale coverage is proportionally reduced.

Tile Shape
Choose decorative 'Club', 'Fishtail' or 'Bullnose' design.

Tile Sizes
The decorative tile strips are available with 16mm wide tiles suitable for use with the 16mm wide clay tile effects.  Dimensions quoted for 1:12 scale tiles ..1:24 scale tiles are proportionally smaller.

Tile Scale
Choose 1:12 or 1:24 scale tiles to match the scale of the dolls house.
 

 - 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).
