Looks super Tom, are you going to share a few tricks for weathering the brick ?  :)
Look forward to you Fsm builds.

Lynn,
 Will share that info your requested on how the brick is treated in the next month by comparing 6 different structures.
All of the builds have been treated differently. Will take photos and post them and how each one finished.
 Notes are taken in all the instructions of each build on primer, chalks, stains, pastels, craft paint colors, etc....
The last structure photo posted shows an Arbor Green craft paint color for the trim. We try to use a different green, blue , brown, or tan too on each one....to change it up.

Great idea taking notes on each build, I find once I’m done getting  just the look I’m after , I can’t remember what road I went on to get there.  ;D
Look forward to your tips.

The brick building looks great. Can't wait to see more.
