Reface brick fireplace with faux stone


Has anyone refaced a brick fireplace with faux (or even real) stone? I'm thinking of doing this and wondering if with just enough mortar and the cut stone pieces, if I can apply it straight to the cleaned brick. Or if some kind of backer board would have to be affixed to the brick first, then the stone face on top of that.

I've done faux stone on an outdoor wall,and put it directly on the brick,but did have to add about a 2 lb. coffee can full of portland cement to the bag of mortar mix i used,so the mortar would hold the stone up,other wise it just wanted to slide off,and it's still there 30 years later.
