Red Brick Painting Templates

Hello All!

This is my first Post.
I have a "concept" in mind for a template kit that would allow the user to paint "sumulated" red brick patterns on interior and exterior surfaces.
These templates would be large 36" x 48" laminated sheets with openings or cutouts that would form a typical red brick pattern. They could be tacked up, painted over, then removed to expose a well placed red-brick pattern.
A template could be partially covered to leave an opening that once painted would reveal a partial exposed brick area. That is common in resturant interiors and exteriors.
Large format paper, Ink, laminating, special paint codes and a textured roller are all that would be required. Throw some small grain aquarium gravel into the paint for added realism and texture. A few small 8.5 x 11 laminated templates would be required for corners and small areas

There are many such products already available in the decorative concrete world. They've been in existence since at least the early 80's.
I use brick stencils all the time, and as a former distributor have sold them to faux painters for doing just what you're suggesting. These stenciling systems also include textured rollers.
There are heavy paper stencils for use in fresh concrete, adhesive- backed paper ones for applying thin (paintlike) overlays to existing concrete, and plastic reusable ones for use in concrete overlayments. Google "concrete stencils" and you'll see what I mean.
