I have just recently purchased a hosue off of ebay (70's printed house) which I am going to turn into a cottage for the owner's to use to get away from the lundby house :)
The house has some bright yellow printed thatch, which is a bit weird, so I wanted to thatch it, well 'thatch effect'.
My boyfriend told me that for miniature wargaming scenery they use fur for thatched housing but I didn't really believe him that it would work on a larger scale.
But I have just found a great tutorial on thatching dolls houses!
Can't wait to get started now!
