Can anyone help with this technique. I'm doing a 3D shack/cabin which was built in the late 1800s. The siding is kind of a wood grain which was painted over a dark green, so both show through. How would I get this effect? I'm thinking of cutting strips of fondant to go across each side...but how would I get the 2-tone worn look?

This is the plan I'm following for the roof:

I am no expert but I would do it just the way the house is. I would make the siding a green then paint with gel color/vodka mix of the dark brown.

I do not see s photo of what you are talking about, but in mind I am picturing an old wood siding home with worn paint. I would make the wood siding out of dark green fondant (if that is the color of the main paint on the home) and brush deep gray/brown petal dust randomly on the slats to make the bare areas.

What grandmaof1 said is about how I would do it. If your siding on the house is fondant slats, then make it a bit light in whatever color you want, then 'haphazardly' brush over with petal dust in the other color.
