Switch to #4 bristle to clean up brick/stone work. Then use #4 script-liner brush to make cracks/broken spots in the wall. -Jerry shows final highlighting technique to create a 3D effect. Using toothbrush and warm browns, splatter inside wall to add softness and texture. -Using #6 Dynasty, clean up edges and create stones around edges and add definition.
