enough cobbling for now ....

printed out some of my cobble sheet paper and got on with sticking it to 4 cork floor tiles. there is some repeat and line areas but not too bad overall, looks odd when bare...
 but add in some buildings and then much better....
I will experiment with trying to remove the darker bands with some carefully applied lighter grey paint and also some light brown to vary the look of the cobbles.


  1. Looks great! I'm not sure how long it has been since I have seen such a grand expanse of pavement uninterrupted by potholes, puddles and "men at work" signs... I wonder what the 18th century equivalent would be? Piles of straw and dung probably! A man or two working to build or repair paving with picks and rocks/bricks might be a nice touch down the road.

  2. Allan, it looks nice, but I wonder if the previous problem could have been solved with a superior glue for the embossed paper?
