Playing with bricks - input?
Posted 02 November 2012 - 07:48 PM
I'll be doing a brick building, so I've been looking into how some of you guys are doing bricks. Philbass has a couple threads here with some outstanding work, so I'm borrowing some of his strategy.
This is about the 3rd test piece. The bricks are still too large, but I think I got the process sorted out.
The question of the day is this - Which generally looks better...painting the mortar first and coming back over the faces with the brick tones? Or painting the brick tones then coming back and washing in the mortar? In this test piece I did the former, but I'd like to hear the thoughts of others with more experience. For this project, I'd much prefer that the mortar is not overly prominent, if that helps steer the discussion.

You're getting a nice variation in the brick which looks good and natural.
