Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is The herein described method of coating a flexible sheet which is to be cut into pieces to 5 form an imitation brick wall comprising applying a mixture of sand and paint material to a surface of the flexible sheet, then coating the surface, after the same has dried to a certain extent, with stone dust, and then 0 trowelling the surface to cause some of the sand to appear through the dust.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
