Bromley Craft Products are known for their various doll house exterior products - tiles, brick finishes, etc - and back when I originally bought the Mountfield house I got a brick stencil (£7.95) and a bag of realistic brick compound in terracotta (£11.95). I'm not sure why I didn't go with the red brick finish but, you know, it's too long ago to remember now!
Anyway, today I finally put them to use. Anthony very kindly spread the compound on because of my very ridiculous - but still very real - fear of chalk, sand, and similar textures. Because the terracotta dries quite dull I wasn't too worried about the detail; it'll likely get more treatment in the future. What I most wanted was just a lot of texture on the walls so the house looks less like a plywood box.
It's still drying at the moment but I'm really pleased with the difference already. You can best see the contrast in the picture below of the chimney stack.
