In keeping with the Italian Villa styling, I am finishing the roof in Spanish barrel tiling- I ordered some plastic sheeting that simulates those tiles, but vastly underestimated how much I would need (the Villa is huge!) so I am waiting on another package to come.
I love copper detailing on roofs and decided to make the overhang reflect that (only the edge and underside will show.)
I had a few rolls of foil type strips that were very gold on one side and silver on the other. Copper strips can be pretty expensive and since I already had this material, why not use it? After gluing it along the edges I painted over it with copper colored acrylic paint. I may add some "age" to the paint later.
