Building a medieval church #6

For my long running build project, of the Medieval version of Harkaer church, I just want to inform you that I at the moment working on the church yard...

Gluing the stone paper...

Started to add the wodden roof to the wall...

The gate ofcourse also get wooden roof...

It indeed take some time to cut the 600 tiles needed to the walls...

...and a picture from Trönö church  that inspired my church wall...


...and a picture of Haraker church from 1750, as you can see they have the wasll with roof. The Church have also been altered sins the 15th centery, larger and more windows etc.

  3. Still looking great and you haven't even started painting it yet!

    600 tiles? That's impressive (and a little crazy ...) Michael!

  4. Very nice work! Is the stone-paper from the hobby-shop or a kind of wallpaper with a "relief-structure"? I have made some prints myself with stone structure but the paper-material you use looks very good.

    1. Thank you !

      The paper I ordered from a wall-paper shop, but it is not true wall.paper, its much thiner, I thin it is used to get strcture and them paint it over.

    2. Thankyou very much for this information Michael. I will contact my local wall-papershop to buy this.
      I have also seen very nice examples of printed pictures of wall-structures that have been glued on to a frame of cardboard or kapa. If you use this technique you need to be good at working with photoshop and a printer that can print in the
      the right scale.I will test both techniques .
      Ha en fortsatt bra dag!

  5. Looking very nice. You might save some time by buying doll house wooden shingles for your roofs.
