    I tried making up the formula for morter as described in, "Building City Scenery" by John Pryke and I'm not overly pleased with the result. I was wondering if some of you guys/gals could post what you've come up with?

    Here are a few links that may be of use. Besides the tips and comments from others, the ones which I've posted are somewhat inter-connected, as your choice of colours for both the bricks and the "mortar" will affect the appearance of the finished structure.

    (BTW, the "Search" function here is also useful for finding stuff - that's how I found my older posts shown in the links.):p:mrgreen:
