Hi All,

The pictures that follow show my brick mold, bricks in various stages, and the dye used for coloring. 

First I tried adding a number of different paints into the plaster but the bricks always ended up too pink. 
I then used artist quality paint powders but they were really messy - wife was not thrilled :) with the dust that I tracked about. 
I then hit on using concrete dye and it works really well. 
I ordered it online and have been in the brick making business since. 

While this mold works fine I have some improvements that I plan on implementing on the next version.

Regards Marty

Just few hours to go .... (I wish) 
This view is looking through the main shop towards the dock and boiler house.
Not sure why the photo rotated. 
All for now,
Marty

Hi Marty,

That is some impressive brickwork! :shocked:
I first wondered what those green lines were for, but I see they are for a different stone pattern.
Clever.

Excellent stone work!
Of course, it is REAL stone work.
Marty, I wish I had your patience.

Woodie

Marty,

Great brickwork!

Looking at your photos looks like you've got some pretty tight curves. 
How tight is the radius on those curves?
