Definitely not the prettiest mural I’ve ever found,
… but the most interesting technique.
The image is chipped, sculpted out.
Upon close examination, I see the original old brick wall.
There appears to be a thick layer of grey plaster, covered by a smooth, thin layer of off white plaster.
Not sure if the bits of colour are old layers of paint over the old brick, added at the end for effect or a combination of the two.
Once the image was sculpted out, a yellow sepia paint was added.
Makes me think of when I was a kid at school. We filled in an entire page of paper with a wild array of crayon colours.
Then we covered the colours with a thick layer of black crayon.
Then we made an image by scraping off the black, and leaving a design.
