ConJe01 Posted January 3, 2014 Share Posted January 3, 2014 Hey All, It's been a while since I've worked on my Orchid and right now, I'm frustrated and don't want to even get back to it. When I first started wanting to get into building my dollhouse, Minis On the Edge, Tracy Topps' Blog, is the first place I found when looking for information. Of course since then, I've been to hundreds of websites. Cutting to the chase, I remember reading on an Orchid blog of hers info on paper clay shingles. I thought it was a bash she did on an Orchid, and it stated to find instructions on how to make the shingles by pulling up another blog for a particular house. However, I can't find where I read it. I've tried to google to find a tutorial or something with instructions. And now I've been searching here to find anything on how to do it. I've read several posts and when a member mentions they have a tutorial or instructions on how to make the shingles, I can't find where their post, or even gallery, is. I'm not very good at just reading instructions without a lot of detailed step-by-steps, but it doesn't matter since I can't find anything. A couple of members have mentioned Rik Pierce's tutorial, but I couldn't find it on his website, or I just don't know where to look. "New Day" mentions he had a tutorial in Dolls House World magazine and I guess I'll probably subscribe. It seems like it would be good for other info also. For now, does anyone know where I can find step-by-step instructions or a tutorial? I'm sure it would be too easy if someone knows where Tracy or Rik has their info. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, it is not the barrel shingles. They are mostly flat with some of them having a little "raised hump" in the middle, I guess to help give them a more worn, weathered look. I am almost positive I've even seen a pictured tutorial on how to create them. Any help you can provide will be very much appreciated. CJ2 P.S.
