Fake Bricks from Masonite

xxx.GIF - 49 Bytes

Cut masonite the size of each brick. Staple and/or glue into place, making sure to leave space, (about a 1/4 inch) in between for mortar. Make a mixture of sawdust and white glue. Apply it to the bricks, scooping out any excess that gets in between bricks. After it dries, paint in dabbing motions with thinnish layers of brick red, burnt sienna, and raw umber (very careful with the umber), each mixed with clear acrylic.
