While choosing doll house shingles you should follow the rule
of that in case it being average 24" wide
you will need one bag of 1,000 to cover
the roof. If your home is wider than 24", or has a porch
or extension you will need more. You can usually estimate
500 roof for every 12" in width of your home.
The styles of the doll house shingles you choose are entirely
up to your preference, and there is nothing wrong with using
more than one shingle style on a home. It was quite common
in Victorian times and is a technique still used today to
dress up roofs.
Starting on the bottom edge, with just a small overlap, measure
the spot on the roof where the top of the shingle will touch.
Measure this across the whole roof line, lay a single bead
of white craft glue just below this line, and lay your first
row of shingles on. Let the glue set up, and then continue
in this manner to the top of the roof. You may have to trim
your last row.
A roof cap is applied over the raw edges at the top giving
you a lovely finish. Be careful not to get glue on it before staining or the stain will not take. Also
be careful not to have too much overlap, or it will build up way too thick as you go along.
This will make your task of decorating your doll house singles
easy and beneficial.
