Hello Nicholas:

I have thought about your question and cannot think of an easy way for you to do what you asked about. If you had a piece of wall , Working With an Interior Designer and a Budget that was done the way you want you could probably find someone who could duplicate it for you.

Trouble is it would be expensive as hell. You would need a large sample so that it did not repeat itself to often.

I think it would be cheaper for you to hire a local , 10 Simple Secrets Of Five-Star Luxury Decorating plasterer and ask him if he could help you.

You could do this yourself , Bed Rugs and Beyond with very little practice. This could be your chance to learn the plaster / stucco trade! You do not want a smooth finish like sheetrock so it should not be too hard.

(Fake of course) A couple of posters of Jackie Gleason and Paul Newman from "The Hustler". Your stamp on the lower corner with the date of completion.

What will your next project bring?

I would go buy a trowel and some plaster or stucco mix and have at it out in the garage. , California King Bedding Cannot Be Interchanged With Standard King Bedding After a couple of hours practice you will probably feel confident enough to start the real thing. It is just a matter of getting a feel for how the plaster spreads and what sort of stroke gives the texture you want.

Use plaster, it is very light , Cozyin' Up to Winter when dry. Stucco is more like concrete , Interior Redesign - What 's All The Buzz About? in the weight department.

You should be able to build the thickness you want without worrying about the walls , Spanish Style Home Decorating ability to support the weight. You will find it will take more than one layer to get the effect you are looking for, so be patient. You can't do it all in one day. It will take 3 or 4 applications.

Don't rush it. Put on 1/8 - 3/16" of plaster and let it dry, then ad to it. If you try to do it 1/2'" at a time it will shrink and checks will develop making the job last longer and making it very frustrating.

There are also places , 7 Decorative Ideas For Stained Glass that do overlays using proprietary mixes and stamping. They have some beautiful , Unique Wall Clocks - Elegance And Style For Every Room stamp patterns. I know they have brick patterns, I have not seen any like you have asked about but that does not mean they don't have any.

I also wondered if you could try to get the thin veneer type bricks that glue on and then have your plasterer sort of stucco over them, maybe leaving a few exposed here and there. Or knocking some of the plaster off after doing the job to get the look you want.

I hope this helps a little, and thanks for thinking of me with your question.
