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: http://media.cakecentral.com/files/cutting_a_roof_980.jpg
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.
Here's the house I'm talkng about. I'm having trouble downloading it.
Good grief...I give up trying to upload here on this site. Here's a link...hopefully I'll have better luck:
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.
Thanks!! I'll be doing a test run in a couple of days
