HO Common Brick w/Bonding Wall Sheet

HO Common Brick w/Bonding Wall Sheet

Laser cut sheet of common red brick with a bonding row every seventh row. This was common on pre-1900's walls as they had no metal tabs or reinforcements so the bonding held the brick fascia to the rear structural wall. Sheet is 12" wide by 8" high with a non-printed boarder around outside edge. Image area is 11.75" x 7.75". Comes either with self-adhesive backing or without.

Our RC Board (resin coated cardstock) has unique painting qualities. The RC Board is a plastic finish so the paints don't tend to soak in. You will get brighter colors with it. 

Laser cutting is deep so that when painted powdered chalks may be added to simulate cement mortar. Photo shows the sheet as it comes in the background and a corner piece made up. Two strips of the brick sheet were cut along the vertical mortar lines. One piece was applied to the backer with its edge even with the corner. The second strip was applied to the 90 degree surface so it overlapped the edge of the first strip with it's edge even with the outside surface of the first strip. No special care was taken other than to match up the horizontal mortar lines.

The made up piece was then painted with Apple Barrel Craft Paint Victorian Red #20791. The top portion had a grey chalk powder applied with a dry brush then rubbed with a finger to wipe the excess chalk off the face of the bricks. The bottom portion is just the paint. A coat of Testor's Dull Cote would set the mortar and protect the brick. Spray application is recommended otherwise the very light film of the chalk on the face of the bricks would be removed.

NEW: A good way to paint these sheets is to spray with light coats of Automotive Gray Primer. Do this from each edge of the sheet towards the center. This is to get the gray down into the mortar lines. When the primer is dry use a dry brush technique to apply a top coat of your chosen color to the face of the blocks or bricks.  

This material cuts easily with an X-Acto knife. The self-adhesive is permanent so care needs to be taken when applying it to the subwall material. Window and door openings can easily be cut in this material as it will not splinter or break.

Price is for one sheet.
