I've got a 1;12 57 Chevy thats been part built for a long time. 1 reason was the interior.

 

What can I use to replicate tuck n roll on the seats ?

Based on a technique that Steve Boutte shared in another forum I made this Tuck'n'Roll
Usually I use half round stripes to replicate Tuck'n'Roll. This method I saw the first time in a posting from Steve Boutte. Steve thanks for sharing this technique.
 
Materials:
Silicon - use your favorite one
Arcyl paint i.e. Schmiecke or Lucas
Tuck'n'Roll tonneau cover i.e. '59 Chevrolet El camino from amt

Steps:
Make a mold of the tonneau cover. 
Pure some of the archly paint in to the mold
Let it dry
Peel it of the mold
Cut to the size that you need
 
Modified seat from '49 Mercury from amy

Yellow arcyl Tuck'n'Roll added to the seat

Thanks for the great info Michael, would never have thought of using silicone. I'll have to look for something more 1;12 to use as a mould.
