Chimney progress

I added the Paperclay to my chimney tonight. It will need to dry overnight before I add the mortar, but I am already pleased with how it looks.

I can't wait til it's all done because  I am really looking forward to decorating the inside. :) I just I picked up these cute pillows (when HBS had their 50% MMD minis) which match the house. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have some time after work to add the mortar, paint the chimney and finish any touchups before I add the front door (to hinge or not to hinge...that is the question).


  1. It looks great, I love the effect. I have never used paperclay before. Do you find it easy to work with?

  2. This is really cool! ... gah... this is why I need you guys, I never would have thought to use paperclay... but it's perfect!

  3. Una buena idea y un fantastico resultado, te ha quedado genial.

  4. I love using Paperclay but I am still pretty new at it. (If you want to see great work with paperclay - shingles, stonework, etc. - check out Tracy Topps' website: http://www.minisontheedge.com/). I love using Paperclay for stones as it's lightweight and doesn't dry out immediately so there's time to adjust it so it's just right. I usually lay down a thin layer of Tacky Glue on my surface before putting down the clay to ensure it stays put. I hope to use it for shingles in the future. :)

  5. It looks wonderful. Fantastic work.
