Blundell is a masonry material used within architecture and construction. Less common than traditional red brick, blundell is composed of a blend of grey, slate, and brown hues, allowing it to compliment natural stone, concrete, and metals. Varying between rustic and smooth finishes, blundell can be found in a range of external and internal components, including building cladding for facades, walls, and landscaping elements. It can also be used for internal decoration and fireplaces.

This texture uses a common or American bond. A true common bond contains between three and nine stretcher courses for every header course however the total number of sretchers can be adjusted. A bond with a single stretcher course for every header course is traditionally called an English bond while a bond with five stretchers for every header is known as Scottish bond.

This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
