Well, I tried the Pink Foam, and worked much better than the White Foam, I found much dense and you can draw the bricks with no damage.

HereĀ“s a how to...

Once I drew the bricks lightly with a fine pencil, I marked them with a knife (slow and with light pressure)



With the same pencil, I redraw each brick and get individual ones.



With a square file, pushed some bricks in here and there.



Here is steps 1-2 and 3 in the same piece of foam.

 


A couple of closeups of the final bricks



 




Hope this helps!

Regards

Lucas-extremely realistic brick work. Thanks for showing how you did it, it has inspired me to make bricks your way.

Si, Lucas' foam brickwork is probably the best I have seen. I tried doing that with Durham's water putty, hydrocal, etc. and none looked as nice as this way.

We don't need no edumacation...
