how I paint bricks buildings/walls

Response to Clobberstone & Bricks

I have found the best way to paint bricks is to paint the entire building with tamiya deck tan (the colour of mortar). Then take your brick red colour and do almost like a very heavy dry brush over the bricks. You will see as you work the brush around the wall or building the paint is picked up by the high points of the bricks and it starts to look like a brick wall with mortar in between. Petr is right that not all brick would be the same colour. I find that a combination of washes of brown and black and dry brushing various shades of reds, browns and even tan take care of this. Hope this helps.
