I've bricked the foundation with egg carton bricks. Always time consuming but with a big return on investment. I had two partial tubes of Burnt Sienna. I did one coat by Liquitex (darker) and the top coat by Daler-Rowney (more orange). I sealed the color with Delta Ceramcoat Satin Varnish and then grouted with DAP Spackling. I added some dark brown washes to stain the grout. Once that dried, I sprayed the bricks with Testors Frosted Glass finish. The final result is a matte red brick with an off white grout.
