While renovating her ‘old ranch-style home’ in Waterkloof Ridge, Pretoria, architect Kate Ghyoot Jollye turned a dividing wall into a feature using a
bagged finish, achieved by a variety of methods
Here are other suggestions for achieving a similar look on a feature wall:
There are a host of photorealistic wallpapers out there that give the illusion of an actual brick wall.
Decocrete is a product by Cemcrete that is a 3–5mm skim-on coating, which you can imprint or carve while it dries. Cassandra de Longh of Cemcrete describes how to get the look. ‘Use a brick-shaped latex mat, to push into the surface of the wet product, and afterwards use sculpting tools to further define and characterise each brick to make it look authentic. Make use of Cretestain, a cement strainer, to wash over the bricks to add some character. This is great for feature walls that have previously been plastered and painted, as the product gets applied on top of the surface, eliminating the need to chop off the plaster or to rebuild the wall.’
WOMAG’S Mosaic Plano tile is small and lightweight, and no two are exactly the same.
