Mostly a blog about my miniatures. I sometimes get sidetracked.
Don't forget to poke the photos to enlarge!

Brick. Brick. Brick....
OK. Does this look like mortar to you? Nope. Just messy paint.
It is a mixture of mostly white, a little black and a bit of Georgia Clay Ceramcoat. Just slopped on any old way.
I didn't want the mortar to look new or all the same.
Next I did the same thing with the bricks. I took a small flat brush and put on individual bricks. Some are light and some are darker. Depending on what color I dipped my brush into.
Step three was putting highlights on the top edge of the bricks...And here and there a little shadow at the bottom. Again...The brick area is completely flat. There are just a few little flaws as you can see in the first photo.
I still need to do a bit of work with my Prismacolor pencils. Then it will be sprayed with a coat of sealer.
After that, I have to do the dreaded electricity....Bah Humbug!
