Came across this in my travels a brick technique similar to the one I use with the addition of white powdered pigment as used in the preparation of oil paint. This has the effect of making the bricks look as if they are really old and have that lime leaching look to them.

Thanks for the link. Those are some nice bricks.

Great timing on that. I have a brick wall coming up. 

BTW, I'm sure I don't have to tell anyone there is much to be learned from the miniaturist/modeler crowd. If anyone is ever in Tucson, I highly recommend visiting this place:

I worked on the design team that built this museum and its first exhibits. There are some amazing pieces in the collection. (A fair amount of junk, too, but the historical miniatures are worth the entry fee.)

It's a great look, and the technique isn't too complicated/difficult.

Have seen something similar, except a ballpoint pen and wooden clay-sculpting tools were used to define edges of bricks (you use a mechanical pencil?).

If you want to add more surface texture with tiny indentations/pits (rather than a texture of raised bumps from applying a sand/glue solution), press course/gritty sandpaper into the surface of the foam before treating it with gesso.

I wouldn't have thought of using dry pigment powder. You've shown it does a lot for the appearance/texture, so I should try it some time.

good work, great technique.

Remind me a job that i worked in my studio a few years ago.
