New mural at P.J. McIntyre's

I did another mural for P.J. McIntyre's last month, sponsored by Jameson Irish Whiskey

Here are some working photos. Although this was done on a flat wall, they wanted the look of old bricks on this section of wall. The first layer is primer and then I made a rubber stamp and mixed up a bucket of various textured acrylic mediums to lay on the faux bricks.

Textured background
 Next I painted the Jameson label background color and painted in the 'mortar' in various shades of greenish/gray.

The area is about 9 feet high and 12-13 feet wide

 Next was painting in the bricks over the mortar.

Adding bricks

Brick detail
 Then I painted the label from the bottle

Thought I was finished here.
 But it was too pristine and Pat asked me to come back and make it look old and beat up -- like the bricks

Finished!
