NOTE: Only every other row in the photo is of these shingles. the other rows are the 9" round tab shingles. 

Check out the (ENLARGE) photo for a look at the real world use of these shingles

These laser cut simulated 9" wide cedar shake/stone slate shingles come on two sheets to a package. The strips are permanent self-adhesive, just peel and stick, real easy to install. The shakes all the same length and the corners are cut inside round so you have an pointed shaped shingle just like the real ones. With a light painting of alcohol/India ink solution the shakes take on a nice aged appearance, a little more, more aging, it's all up to you. Check the photo at top, half is stained the other half is not. There is also a strip that can be used for a ridge cap.

Shingles are laser cut from a heavy wood fiber content paper and resemble real wood very well.

You get 2 sheets that measure 4 inches wide by 12 inches long. With a 50% overlap the shingles would cover the area of a single sheet. The two sheets have approximately 90 square inches  of shingles which will cover approximately 45 square inches of area.

These shakes are also good for wall coverings to vary your buildings. Because they can be stained easily you can add various tones to simulate rotting or even previously painted shingles. The Slate Gray or Green colored stock simulate hard slate shingles while the Brown colored simulate cedar shakes. Let your imagination run wild.
