Brick Red Crayola

The Crayola color is Brick Red. Compared to the red bricks of the UK it’s a tad too red! I say always go to the source! I learned at Hampton Court Palace how to tell who laid the bricks. The Flemish bricklayers laid bricks of various shades and lengths all mixed together. The English bricklayers laid one row of short bricks then one row of long bricks. It’s good to know your bricks and bricklayers!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!

    Next time I’m watching ‘Escape to the Country’ and we have a brick home, I’ll be looking at the brick patterns with interest. I hadn’t heard of the difference between the Flemish and English laying style. Thanks for sharing.
