Around my area... We have come across Brickwork ( probably everywhere ) that seemed to have a Stucco / or / cement type oaf Slurry that distressed the bricks a bit different then your photos of chipped paint... Like a white ish Color was brushed or sloped on in areas... It's important after you arrive at the technique of your project to have a Good Design Plan... Like an 80 / 20 .. Or 70 / 30. Meaning the white could be on 70% of the area... Or the White could be on 30% of the area.... Not 50/50 in other words... Sometimes if I'm stuck on something,i will chalk out a design... This is a fireplace that we had to shift the color on as it was out of place with the space... And we just needed to better the look.... But the Bricks had this Cement type product on it..
All this other comments on here are Very interesting and sometimes I have ideas,and just try them out... Sometimes they work...and sometimes not...
But this is Art work you are going to be doing and if you have a Good Design your halfway there... On the cement slurry ( I'll call it ) there was Thick areas ,and thin areas.. Like a wash... Large Patches and small ones.. Different shapes .. Etc.

He'd probably do it in 2 places, top and bottom, since the center of that wall looks pretty much intact.

A couple of the bricks in that center picture look a lot like a rattle can of white -fogged..so that takes care of 2.

Some of the bricks in the wall are completely clean..so that takes care of 2

Probably take a brush and "dabb" the other 2.

..but I could be wrong.

No, not all. I find with a smaller area there is a tendency to really overdo it, unless you're a skilled artisan such as myself. Exercising restraint is an art. (How's that for an a-hole comment?)

But yeah, that's pretty much what I would do, with plain oil' white paint,water, brush and maybe a scrubbie. Don't forget to throw in a splash of love.

Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear enough. Its not a 2'X2' piece of a chimney. It is a 2'X2' square chimney, about 10' tall

I sure hope not, cuz if it's 2x10 on all 4 sides, that means someone forgot to connect it to the house.

What I might do (and I'm not trying to be an a-hole here), is to take representative pictures of 2 foot sections, and then "copy" them onto the chimney.

Except for maybe the black overspray. Did you do that Bender?

(I realize I'm talking about the artistic part of the job and not the mechanics of creating it)

Just make sure you keep it simple . Stay zen.

Crackle medium is sold at any art store in the western hemisphere. Dont know if you'd need it, might not read that well from far. You could probably achieve it with a roller, sometimes dry and a few dashes from your brush.

You have to get in touch with the crummy painter in you because your giving it a very bad paint job. Dont go all picaso.

Funny thing I did a job similar to this last year.

I am not sure if you solved this project yet or not but this finish is extremely easy to duplicate.

Go to any local paint store or big box retailer and pick up some paste wax. I personally like the minwax, but any would work ex. briwax, mccloskys.

You take this wax and rub it into the areas you want the brick to be exposed.

Paint over it with whatever paint you want, the pictures don't look like anything different than a traditional satin sheen white paint.

Wait for it to dry to the touch, and then start sanding those areas with either a wire brush or sand paper. You will watch the paint come off in those areas while the rest remains adhered. The nice thing about the wax is it will seal the exposed brick so it will be water resistant and you wont have to worry about water getting behind the paint coating and causing paint failure. If you are concerned about water seepage, paint it with a flat - which is easier to sand and wire brush anyways, then hit the bricks harder to remove the wax once the paint is removed and seal it all with a good exterior clear
