This is a real old roof slate shingle. It came off of an old
Victorian house out here in Chester County PA. The house is still
standing, and lived in, this tile was obtained when part of the
house was rebuilt due to fire. Rumor has it that the house is
haunted!! People report seeing a little girl in an attic window -
but no little girl of that age lived in the house. -- just so you
know this is an authentic roofing slate, and not one from the
craft store -- take a look at the line down the center. This is
where the other tiles were placed on top of this one. Notice also,
the uneven holes. This was done on purpose so the boards of the
roof didn't split.
I have painted
a few of my anthropomorphic veggie men - the Wicked Weeds on
this slate. We have Butch Butternut on the left, Rot N. Pumpkin on
the right, and Zeke Zucchini in the back. They have the worst
attitudes-they are truly Bad Seeds!!
The slate has been coated in a non
toxic acrylic sealer for durability.
