Last night I stained the staircases, and painted the shingles in preparation last night for the textured spray paint. Today I spray painted the shingles, installed imitation copper flashing and started shingling the roof. I only completed four rows but I think it is coming out great! The copper flashing was scrapbooking paper that looked like a dark copper metal. I cut those into strips for the valley of the roof and also where the roof butts against the tower. Not much shows once the shingles are in place but it was a touch of realism I wanted.
