    Thanks Jim! Click image for larger version  Name:	thumbup1.gif Views:	0 Size:	252 Bytes ID:	969319
    Today’s progress was weathering the tarpaper roofing with soft pastels. I used dark and medium browns, and a rust color. Starting with the brown colors, I brushed along the edges and bottom of the roof lines. Then brushed from the ripped paper edges down with dark brown. Lastly using the rust color across the roof here and there.
    Next, I’ll be painting the Athearn flat car, installing Kadee couplers, and Intermountain metal wheel sets. and get it ready to mount the front store section. Until then, thanks for following along. Roof weathering finished and before roof weathered pictures attached.

    To further the old age weathering of my structure, I used my White Ink & Alcohol wash mixture (Used like the traditional Black India ink and Alcohol mix), and applied with a small flux brush to tone down the wood stain, and give it that weathered old, moldy wood look. I use a mixture of 2 TSP of White Ink, with 2 TBSP of 91% Alcohol for this affect. You can vary your mix from a grey tone to a brighter white tinge if wanted, using more or less white ink. This affect works well for sea front structures from old greying wood, to pigeon poop.
    Below are some pictures of the white ink wash on the structure. Next, I’ll take a small paint brush (seen in front of the structure), and cut off the tip for applying weathering powders to the tar roofing material. I’ll return with the progress of the roof weathering powders applied.

    Lots of useful hints in your how-to postings. The roof looks terrific. I suspect a roof would get beat up out in the woods and being transported around.

    Louis the glass looks great. I guess I will have to break down and try it. The tar paper roofing looks great I like the weathering that you did. I will have to try some of those techniques on one of my projects. Great job on the Roof can't wait to see it installed.
    Thanks Mike for posting your comments, and following along.
