Things are coming along

Started adding the egg carton "bricks" with caulk
You need to paint a lighter color first for the grout lines then the darker color for the individual bricks.  I used a marbleizing technique with black, white, and dark gray to get the
 look of stone.

Yup. Magic!
I decided to go with what I know and forgo the fancy spray paints.  I am covering the castle with egg carton bricks and grouting with caulk.  Caulk is messy, but it adds nice texture for the stone blocks.  I used the same technique (I don't know if you can call it that) on a fireplace, chimney, and wishing well for my from scratch log cabin I built.  Can't wait to paint.  That's when the magic begins.
