Just finished another Halloween Putz house. This one has a textured roof which is designed to look like slate. It’s the first time I’ve used a stencil with Tim Holtz’ texture paste and I like the way it looks. This house is for a friend of mine who requested her house a little later and she really liked Jack’s house so this is the same pattern, just another variation. I love this pattern. It is so versatile and makes such great little houses.
You can find Jack’s house pattern in this post – Make your own original Putz house – part 2. Instructions for making the house and how to make your own patterns are included in these two posts:
- Cardboard for the house
- Glue – Aleene’s Quick Grab is my favorite though it is very thick and hard to squeeze out of the bottle
- Paints – acrylic paints in grey and white and black. I like to use Tim Holtz Distress Paints particularly, Black Soot with the dabber top to distress the paint on the houses.
