Here's where I get it:

http://www.texascraft.com/hps/Waterproof-Adhesive-Vinyl/

They have versions for inkjet or laser printer. My printer is an inkjet so that's the kind I get.

It does need a clear coat to protect it. I spray the printed piece with several light coats of Krylon UV-resistant clear matte.

I use this stuff for floors and wallpaper in my buildings, posters, portraits or other interior decorations, and exterior signs.

Ted and Pete, sorry. I typed in all the info in an answer to a PM from Dave and I guess this old
brain forgot that that info does not appear on the forum. I see that now Ray has given the source and
it was his idea to begin with. I log in to www.papilio.com but I think Ray and I end up at
the same place. I order the Inkjet White Waterproof Vinyl. It comes in single sheets,
packs of 10, and packs of 100 sheets. Not inexpensive but great stuff.

The second wall is just like the first one except I replaced a pair of windows with a large door.

Bob (and Ray),

Thank you for the information. You answered a lot of my unasked questions. I might give it a try on my next brick structure, which has moved forward in the queue.

Mike

Bob, great project - great brick site.
I'm curious as to how you get the window layout? I selected a brick pattern but when I was done it seemed like it was just going to print a page of bricks.

Gentlemen,

Good info. Thanks to Bob and Ray!

There used to be a "Bob and Ray" radio program around here-- I ought to sniff around and see if it's still up. Or not....

Interesting conversation on the medium. Has anyone tried to weather the vinyl with pastels, weathering powders, or dry paint pigments?

Thanks for all the posts guys.

Mike - Go for it !!

Frank - Yes, a sheet of printed bricks is all you get. That is applied to the forms (I used
Taskboard, see previous page). I wrap the brick sheet around the Taskboard then cut a slit down
through the brick sheet that's over the window openings and cut it across top and bottom. Then
fold those flaps around the Taskboard to cover the edges. I then covered the arched tops and
sills as per previous page. Then, in this case, I had three Taskboard forms covered which were
glued one atop the other to form the brick wall.

Pete - I used to listen to Bob and Ray and you can still get them from old radio show dealers.

KP - I plan to weather them a little but doing a lot is beyond my artistic talents. Troels Kirk
has weathered buildings covered with brick paper and his builds are still on the web but I don't
know exactly how to find the brick paper models.

Hey Bob,
Look at Troel's Coast Line RR vol.3 page 50 in the on30 forum. This is a build of a weathered brick building.
I don't know how to post a link but use the search tool to find.
Dave

Again, here are the form pieces cut from 1/8 inch thick Taskboard to form a building end.



Here are the same pieces covered with brick detail printed on self adhesive vinyl and glued one atop the other. This also includes a brick strip along the top of the wall below the peak.

Bob,
My question is about how a powder will adhere to the vinyl sheet. I'm pretty sure that one is going to have to use a spray fixative of some sort due to the vinyl surface, but not sure if one needs to apply the powder heavier than normal due to the lack of adhesion on the surface. Is there a loss of powder when the fixative is applied? Is it advantageous to apply a light fixative coat prior to the powder application to provide some 'tooth' to the vinyl surface?
