Seams in fake brick paneling

by Dee
I inherited a wall of 3 4'x8' fake brick panels. The seams are pretty obvious. Any suggestions on how to hide the seams before I paint? Thanks.

    Do you have a picture? I'm thinking if you ran a line of grout or something along the seam and then smoothed it out, it might look like the rest of the grout lines, and then you'd be free to paint it. Good luck!

    I would research paintable acrylic caulking.

    I would frame it out with 1x4 pine boards and then paint it the same color.

    Can the fake brick wallboard be removed? I'm thinking. If you can remove it and there's decent wallboard behind it you wouldn't need to worry about the seams.

    Make sure all is attached to wall tighly the caulk joints before you paint with laytex paintable calk (wet whipe lightly after application or "srike off" with wet finger so you fill the joint but only to flush the gap)

    Thanks. I like the paintable chalk idea. Sounds like it'll work. Thanks!
