Matching Brick Color

Hi All,
What are my choices to try and match 20yr old brickcolor with a current purchase of the same model brick. I have a two storey brickextention with a flat roof, soon, it will gain a pitched addition. Im thinking the new brickwork will look different to the existing, again , what are the best options to try and match the color difference? Im thinking are there any industrial liquid soloutions out there for such a scenario?

Matching Brick Color

I put an addition on a house built in 1949. The mason had no poblem matching the brick. The mortar was not the same, but eight years later, it's getting closer.
