I’ve always had a thing for brick walls. They have so much texture, depth, personality. Brick makes everything better.
So when I thought of making a dollhouse for my daughter, my mind immediately said “brick”! I’ve watched a lot of tutorials on how to make scale bricks, from making forms out of foam core to cutting a slab of clay in the right sized rectangles. You can also laser-cut your brick pattern into MDF and just paint the bricks and grout lines. I even saw a few people recommend painting foam bricks or gluing brick-sized cutouts from egg cartons to your wall.
But I’m a sucker for authenticity, and so decided to go perhaps a little too far in the direction of laboriously handmade.
