Miner's tent and canvas roofs
 
Does anyone know how to "do" canvas in scale? Goal is to create a mining town with a few tents and building with canvas roofs.

Linen handkerchiefs.
Long time favorite.

A style like that? The canvas is a fine cotton, soaked in hot tea, to give it a more "linen" color

Just about any fine woven cloth will work. If you cannot find a canvas color, buy it in white and stain it.


Stains to try are tea, coffee, or any dark drink. Try some samples to get the shade you want.


Hope this helps.

Madame, indeed! I wish.
But I do refer to her as such. Much in the 19th century context, though.

I can sew, but could not possibly make a 1:20 scale stich :(

I anticipated an answer like "glue" or "magic stich" done with iron

Can I have more information on this particular model and how it was made. I think I am seeing an inner wall used to keep the "canvas" taught looking.

Nails on the size are the size of scale doorknobs, but that's just the way it is in representative scale.
