I picked up several of these brick style fencing long ago at a thrift store. I finally decided to dress them up a little by adding the mortar look to the bricks. I still have some more painting to do, but look at the difference from the plain piece!!!

Absolutely amazing transformation!

Ryan, these were made by Supreme and have been included in car playsets for twenty years. As is the case with the cars, there is no maker mark on them once out of the packaging.

I used dry-erase marker to add some black mortar, but some spots were so shallow that it wiped away. I really prefer the look of the white mortar!

Another option for the mortar is to paint the whole piece with the color you chose for the mortar and then whip surface of the pierce quickly with a towel and most of the paint in the cracks will stay. This is a tip I learned from a model railroader.
