Faux Brick

I have had good luck making finishes look old by using stencil brushes (the fat ones) and acrylic paints.I use a satin base clear glaze and add when needed. Maybe go over the entire wall with a light glaze mixed with a brownish color to compliment your room tones. Then I would take an even darker brown such as raw umber and glaze this darker in the corners...just to make it even older looking use a clean brush and use bright greensand dark greens and glaze to dab some along the botom and or in areas that you might think would look mossy. I hand painted faux bricks on my bathroom floor and used several brick reds and browns to get an individual look, everyone loves them! They think they are real, the green mosses on some give it a good affect. Hope this helps ;0)
