Calico and white lead paint roof

Postby Hskelton » Sat Aug 17, 2013 8:29 am


We have a 1900 showmans caravan which we are restoring and the project is going very well except we don't know how best to tackle the roof. Traditionally it would have been done with calico and white lead paint which we would prefer to do but we have no idea how to and can't find any info/instructions online. Would someone be able to help? Or if anyone can suggest another way to do the mollycroft roof then we love to hear from you.

Thanks Hayley and Edward
