I didn´t tear one down ;-) - but tried to make a realistic one for the inside back wall of my flower shop project. But OMG so many choises to take, it really made me ambigious. I wanted to use Magic - a system with different kinds of tile-tape and grout, and I wanted a worn brick wall.
You can choose between a classic red brick or a white one but he latter one has a more sandy structure. And then there is the joints,..you also have to choose your color.
I made a lot of samples of both, knowing that I would paint on the finished bricks too. Should I "dress down" the red one, or pimp the white one? I ended up with the last try, but then I made the choise to make it on a separate sheet of thick card stock (no wood available at the moment). Should not have done that, because some of the tape ate the card stock in different places! Large damage!
After lots of consideration I chose to keep the card stock wall and to make something out of the damage. Who has ever seen such an old wall undamaged?
I´ve painted each tile individually with a basic color and then added spots of brown, green, grey and terracotta on strategic places. Then I added sand filler for the missing parts and several other places too.
Hope you like it. It bought the Magic at Miniseum, the flowers are made by Mette Sauermilch Laurentz, and Cilla Halbert made the Chandelier, thanks.
Wishing all miniaturists a happy easter!
