*This is the standing joke in my house when model railways become just too difficult.<br /><br />I'm in the dumps as no matter what I try I just can't get a brick finish I'm happy with, I can see now why I stuck to using Scalescenes for so long, I just can't paint brickwork.<br /><br />The desk is covered with dozens of little laser cut test sheds which are going to end up in the bin very soon at this rate.<br /><br /><br /><br />I've tried painting a brick colour in Enamel and using an Acrylic to run the mortar into the cracks. I've tried painting the whole building in a mortar colour and then painting the bricks using a sponge pad. I'm incapable of picking out individual bricks i just end up with painty blobs and I don't seem to be able to get enough of the 'mortar wash' off the surface of the bricks (using water or IPA) to bring it back to a decent colour.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />I'll admit to feeling right royally hacked off with it.<br /><br />HELP!<br /><br />David
