  1. I'm sure someone on the forum has used these Andi mini bricks. Would you please share your experience and/or photos? Thank you.
  2. From the album: Shabby Chantilly

    I have decided to keep the exposed brick wall. I think once I have it completed with miniature accessories, it will add texture.
  3. What are the best ways and materials to create a plaster wall effect? Does anyone use cement or concrete mixes to create surface effects? I made an ancient Roman stove in 1/12 scale and used a mixture of spackle, water and tacky glue on the surface, tinted with a bit of acrylic paint. I am satisfied with the result but I'd like to find something that is easier to work with. I included a link to my new miniatures Facebook page where I have photos of the stove and other items I've made- I'd love any input or suggestions:) I https://m.facebook.com/Crafting-History-in-Miniatur

    I have finished adding brick borders to the 30 windows! I especially like the borders around the tower windows and the oval windows. Read more at: http://thegarfieldblog.blogspot.com/2014/04/brick-borders-complete.html
  5. From the album: 2014 HBS Creatin' Contest--Erabliere Aucoin, Sugar Shack and Shop

    The chimney is entirely made of paperclay (FWIW, I'm a big fan of Das Modeling Clay, rather than Creative Paperclay brand, because it's less expensive and seems to work about the same). The stone style is intentionally different on the inside of the building and the outside, but both are (intended to be) authentic to the region where this cabane is situated.
  6. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    It was surprisingly easy to clean up the mortar. I used my fingers to rub off the excess from the brick surface, then went back with a damp paper towel to wipe down the bricks. I probably made 2 or three passes including cleaning each individual brick. Finally, I rubbed the brick lightly with a dry paper towel.
  7. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    I like how this came out and I hope it is durable over the long term. It also occurs to me that if I want to return the bricks more to their rough (non-clear-coated) original state, I could sand them lightly with fine grit sandpaper to remove the clear coat. I also found some matte consistency clear coat as an alternative, but I think I'll stick with it the way it is for now.

    Chimney Complete

    So here's the final product with the tape removed. I'm going to need to do some clean-up of my stain on the roof, but no big deal.

    Chimney Clean-up

    From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    Thank goodness I looked up the mortaring process here before I tried anything. A post from Ravenswing demonstrated the necessity of applying a clear-coat to the brick before mortaring. As the brick is water soluble, I found a can of spray-on satin clear coat that had an oil base. (Almost everything is water-based these days). A few coats of that and a day's drying time gave the brick a waterproof and mortar-proof top-coat that made clean-up a snap.
  10. From the album: My First Build: The Beacon Hill

    The first side I attempted to mortar was a bit too runny, so I had to go back and do a second coat after it dried. With the mortar being too wet, it also required to be laid on its side until it dried. I also tried using a large animal syringe to inject the mortar the first time and determined that it was easier just to glop it on with my fingers and rub it into the joints. The other sides as in this pic, I made sure the mortar consistency was thicker, which allowed me to rotate the house without waiting for each side to dry. In both cases I added wood glue to the mix in roughly a 1:4

    Got some more done today on the bricks and general wallpapering / trim inside. It's finally starting to look like a house. i'm really hoping my idea of sponging on "brick" colour works lol
  12. From the album: Duracraft Newberg

    I got 2 more walls done tonight and the mortar lines stained grey on the base / 3 bricked walls, as well as the porch roof trimmed up to size

    1 Vince Vaughn movie and I got a wall done, guess they are good for something

    Left to right: stone, tiles, brick - machine scaled down size by half - so more like 1/24 scale?

  22. From the album: My Arthur: Santa's House

    I had trimmed the stencil to fit in the width of the porch foundation wall, as I did not have any spray adhesive in the house. After the first layer dried overnight, I just positioned the stencil over the last column of bricks to anchor it, and I put the next layer of Spackle on.

    Progress shot

    From the album: My Arthur: Santa's House

    I continued with a third layer while the second one was still wet. It was tricky, so next time I'll wait for it to dry properly before attempting to continue the rows of bricks.
