Each package comes with 5 real cedar sheets that are
approximately .018 inches thick, 2.5" by 5.5". The natural cedar wood
can be cut to any scale size with a modeling
knife, scissors, or paper cutter. Application to either card stock or wood
roof sheets is easily accomplished with white glue. Full instructions for
included with each package. After the glue has dried during application,
the wooden shingles may be left in a “new shingle” look or finished to “weathered shingle” look by using many
techniques, such as India ink and alcohol mix, chalks or even the A-West Weather-it
SSM now offers something that no one has offered
before. Cedar Shingle Sheets are now available in three different
thicknesses. Thin is .011, medium is our standard at .018, and thick is
.038. The sheet size remains the same at 2.5" x 5.5". If thin or
thick sheets are desired please indicate so on your order, or we will assume you
desire the normal .018 thickness and send them. Prices for all thicknesses
are the same.
5 sheets for $2.95. Includes five
sheets of thin, medium, or thick real cedar shingles (2.5" X 5.5") and detailed directions.
Medium (.018) shingles will be sent unless e-mail message is received specifying
thin or thick thicknesses.
you ever looked at a superbly built structure and thought it deserved something
better than brown paper bag shingles on the roof? Have you seen the shingles on
an award winning structure and wondered how they did it?
Cedar shingles add a realism that is impossible to
imitate any other way. These two photos depict our cedar shingles that have been weathered (left)
