This faux brick plaster wall effect was sculpted using plaster and putty. It was sculpted over an abandoned square of weather worn plywood.
I have always loved the texture and depth of color in plastered brick walls. The salvaged plywood gave me a chance to recreate the effect in one of my pieces.
Surface details were achieved by applying various shades of acrylic paint. This process took some time and patience.
The inspiration for this piece came from the cheese like piece of (what I can only assume is agate) water worn rock, reminiscent of a piece of dried and moldy swiss cheese.
