Another brick in the wall

Our talented scenic artists show us just how to replicate a distressed brick wall…

Brick mold

The plastic mold is layered with a fine casting plaster then hessian to strengthen.

Motar

A grey paint is used to replicate the mortar joints.

Paint effect

A red brick colour is applied lightly to the plaster using a roller.
