The video turned out well.

Are the windows flocked. At least the gold colored ones.
They look silk screened.

Steve the windows aren't flocked, but I did hand paint them which might give them a thicker appearance. I printed off a pattern for them on some cardstock I got from Office depot and then painted them to match the photo of the original. I took some photos of how I did the windows, if I get a min I'll post pics of that. They aren't as crisp as Pete's die cut ones, but I didn't have any of his and didn't know if it was a custom size so I just made my own. Pete told me that the original had a curtain on it. I wasn't familiar with the curtains, but it does look like there might have been a light brown sheet of cellophane or film that was torn away from the door. I need to do some further investigating. :)
