After lots of request, I decide to show you how I make the brickwalls you can see there: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/398449.page ...So I don't want to waste time writing, get to work

WHAT YOU NEED:

Foam sheet ( In italy is used as insulating for houses, it cost 2 dollars a sheet 2' x 4')


A Ruler, marking pen, hobby knife and an old pen(doesn't matter if exhausted)


....Oh yes, a working finger too!!


LET'S START:

I'll show you how to make decorative brickwall, brick made walls and a brick made wall covered by parget (I donìt know if correct, that's the fraslaction I get) so I divide the sheet in three parts.


First of all, you need to mark some "guiding dot" in vertical direction to let you get straight orizontal lines. I keep 0,5 Cm space from a dot to another.


Then mark some other guiding dot in a distance from the firsts ones.


Now you have all the dots you need, so mark orizontal lines for every dot you have in couple.

For the wall with parget, Idraw a guide line to mark the parget, when drawing the horizontal line there, avoid the parget area.

When you have done, mark the vertical lines, but don't measure it...just let your eyes do it, this will make the wall less schematic and if you make some mistake no one will notice it



Take the hobby knife and carve along the long horizontal lines.


For the wall with parget, carve along the parget line too.


Now take your old pen, and "pass" it trough the horizontal lines you carved before, do that ONLY for decorative brick wall.


Take again your hobby knife, and carve along the vertical lines, and be careful not harm other bricks!


Take the old pen another time, and pass it over the vertical lines you just carved, do that ONLY for decorative brick wall.


The decorative brick wall is finished


Ok, you still have your finger to use right??Now is its time!! Use your finger to push every brick down, DON'T do that on decorative brick wall, it is already finished.


You can keep here and there some "risen" brick to make the wall more realistic.


For the parget wall push the brick until you get to the parget line, there you HAVE To stop, and keep the parget area rise on the brick wall.


When your finger get a little "squared" and blue......


....then you are ready to watch your wonderful finished work

Awesome! I was looking to model some units with brick walls around them but I didn't know the best way to do it. This helps a lot. Thanks.

I did.... and ... he doesn't. However my comment was in the context of this tutorial. Showing the finished product is pretty standard so folks can see the end result of the process in vivo.

It's a fantastic build and tut Zebra! Just needs that "final step" to be complete. I'll be anxiously awaiting that moment (not only for your tut but for your entire project!

Decorative brickwall and brick made wall....Ok I'll try to explain, hope you understand

If the wall itself is made entriely by brick it is a normal brick wall or brick made wall as I call it, but brick are used even not to build the wall itself, but to cover the wall made for example in concrete or awful grey big brick...So if we have to re-create a brick made wall there will be no gap between brick to brick because they're one on top of the of the others and the brick are not perfectly plain. Instead if we are re-creating a decorative brick wall, in real life the bricks used for this puspose are very smaller to bricks used to build a wall, and they're added after the concrete wall is built, so to make them even more beautiful there should be a gap made of white/gray stucco between every decorative brick, that's why we pass a pen or a pencil on carved lines on the foam, just to create this gap/space or what is called

Hope to be clear...sorry it's difficult to explain in english

This is a good tute.

I'm curious though, how long did it take?

I'm a building surveyor by trade and I seem to remember from my distant past at Uni doing Technical drawing, doing this on paper would take an age.

I have been tempted to do this myself as i find the stuff you get printed on sheets to be too homogenous to look really nice.

To make a completely building of 60cmx25cm 28cm tall, it takes around ah hour and half...it's long, but patience is the key of this hobby...without it, you can never go too far...
