Slurry finish over brick
I had tornado damage to my home and had to replace brick with some that didn't match the rest of the house. We have seen homes with what is called a slurry finish over the brick that look very nice. From what I understand, it is basically mortar sponged or trowelled over the surface of the brick. The outline of the brick still shows through, but not the color. I believe the slurry can be either pre-colored or painted afterward. Does anyone have any more information on how this is done? For instance, what ingredients and ratios go into the mortar and how to best apply it? Thanks.
