One 750g bag of Realistic Brick Compound will cover an area of 4.5 square feet or 0.5 square metre approx. This is typically sufficient to cover a small to medium size dolls house (2 - 3 room), but this is just a guide as coverage varies according to application thickness etc. This is roughly equivalent to 3000 individual bricks.
The photos above give a rough guide to the finished colours achieved using the Realistic Brick Compound - Results may vary (see below).
The compound colour will appear to change during the application process, for example it will usually appear darker when wet than when dry. We recommend making a small sample to check the finished colour before applying the compound to a project.
Sealing: The compound should be sealed with a clear matt varnish when the application is complete. Many different varnishes are available and we recommend testing on a small area before applications results vary. Sealing with varnish will waterproof and protect the finish and generally enhances the finished compound colour. We recommend using Polyvine Dead Flat Decorators Varnish - Click Here for details.
Shading: If desired, after application the compound can be shaded using acrylic paints to create a more authentic and weathered appearance. Shading can be added either before or after sealing the compound with varnish and the finished effects which can be produced vary greatly depending on the technique used. It is therefore a good idea to experiment on a test piece first.
