Yesterday I made a new mold of an exposed brick fireplace surround. The bricks are in the proccess of being stripped back and still have a layer of very old cream paint on them. I wasn't sure how this mold was going to work as some of the brick had been filled in and some was very damaged. The mold did not come off in one piece, it broke where the brick was damaged but you can clearly see where a concrete filler has been used and where there is paint on the bricks:

I left this mold in a warm place to dry and photographed it every half an hour. The weather was very bad and the light went quite early so several of the later photos are taken under artificial light. I then put these photographs onto a timeline to map the drying process:
