I started by putting light and dark gray acrylic washes on the exterior with heavy and dry brush strokes. I added acrylic paint over the top of the bricks. I used (1) red oxide, (2) terra cotta and (3) toffee on the bricks with olive green for moss (base coat) on the "grout". I applied the crackle medium over the dry exterior. I plan to go over the crackle medium with white acrylic in some areas when it dries. I plan to work on the foundation some more. I sprayed the steps with a stone texture paint, bleached stone, that I plan to make look like aged concrete later once it dries.

You can see my test run with the crackle medium on the board above the brick
