This breakaway brick technique looks so real people actually touch the walls to see if the bricks are really covered in plaster! The technique can be done in any color. Even the area around the mirror is faux.

The kitchen below was also done in the brick technique. The raised bricks are painted on the backsplash and under the bar in combination with the plaster.

The 'strea' technique is illustrated below.  This technique completed using shades of the same color, lighted or darkened to create the effect of a weathered wall. The wall below also shows the breakaway plaster technique from the kitchen images on the previous page. This is a complimentary technique used to pull rooms of different colors or techniques together.
