I get lots of questions from all my Faux Brick eBook customers. Every time I get a question… I know I need to add another little something to the book.
When authors read their own material, we can’t see the forest for the trees. What may seem obvious to me… someone else will draw a total blank.
It may seem funny to question… how to paint shadows, after I have given such explicit instructions, but would those directions be different for a different colored brick?
I am finally doing it…after watching the video a handful of times and reading and re-reading the eBook, I got down to it.
One question…If my brick is white, how do I paint the shadow depth?
In the video, your brick is reddish, so the shadow on the top/ left side is white. What if the brick is white?
Can’t wait to send you some pictures.
Well, first off – I thought…. a shadow is a shadow. But, would the black shadow be too harsh on white bricks? Yes, it probably would. So, my suggestions is…. use a bit of black in your grout color and use this for the shadow color.
If… after you have done all the shadows and highlights, and the bricks still don’t “pop” off the wall and look dimensional, then you will need to use the black, like eyeliner. Very sparingly, so you don’t overwhelm the white bricks!
