Bricks, vricks

We don’t look for easy ways.. These days I was reading a lot of posts about making bricks, imitating them and so on.
In the beginning I was going to use clay bricks, made of Jovi white air dry clay. I made half of the wall – but I didn’t like the result. Besides, I had to paint it later. So, I was thinking of making simple molds for the bricks from  silicone rubber. Then I would try using alabaster as a brick material.
And here it is. First of all, I’ve made wooden bricks, I used balsa wood. And then I glued them to the sheet of plywood.

After that, I covered the surface with beeswax.
Then I used, hm, not sure if it sounds right in English – sealant compound. Pretty easy to use. I could buy white and transparent one. I didn’t have much of the white, so I used it just to see how it goes.  And here’s the result.

Unfortunately, I was right: I didn’t have enough compound, so it’s not a perfect form. But I know now how to make it, so I’ll try again with transparent compound today.
