Colour Bricks


I coloured the bricks in original LEGO colours from the 70's, this is my first attempt at building a structure with them. it failed. Now I am going to try the following:
I have some premixed grout with adhesive in it. It's white, so I am going to add a bit of black acrylic to make it my desired grey. Then, I will build my structure with the grout one bit at a time.

Port Haney Brick


Last week on my walk to collect more bricks I came across a cylinder-shaped terra cotta pipe with a logo engraved into the body reading: Port Haney Brick. In my follow up research, this is what I recovered: a section from Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows: A History in Photographs

Day 5

Prototype 1
Today I have added to the collection some of
my garden bricks which I have collected a few
years ago from the same site at Kitsilano
"Crescent" beach. They have Algae grown on
them through out the years in the garden. 

I found the Brick set with the cement in-between
them from the Kitsialno
Beach.
Kitsilaino: named after Squamish chief August Jack Khatsahlano (Xats'alanexw)
