Does anyone know how make the front of the Beacon Hill, The haunted Beacon Hill. I like the way you can see the old brick peeking through the "plaster or mortar" or what ever is on the front of the house.I would like to copy that look, is it done with the sheets of brick or are some sort of actual bricks used and plaster or mortar on top of that with the bricks just shown through and the look of creaks painted on or what? Any suggestions will be so helpful. Thank you so much.

You place whatever you want to use for bricks in sections where you want the plaster to have broken off, then "frost" the rest of your walls with whatever you're using for plaster, using your applicator to just gently draw the plastering medium over the margins of your bricked areas. While the plaster medium is still damp you can use a pin or needle to draw your cracks.

I plan a similar treatment when I build the Lily, since it wants to be a Tuscan villa.

Has anyone ever use the textured plastic sheets of bricks from the HBS catalog? the bricks look like they are white or light grey and can be painted. I was wondering how bumpy they are and how hard it would be to cover them with stucco or mortar to achieve the same look as the haunted Beacon Hill.
