I have had paint matched (as closely as possible) to the brick and touched up over the paint so it wouldn't stand out so bad when repainting trim on brick houses.

I totally agree with Red Dog. Match the color, get a small brush, and keep the touch-up as small as possible.

I guess I'm confused are we putting paint on, or are we taking paint off?

Putting old, dry paint onto bricks and getting it to stick is a whole 'nother kettle of fish.

A wire wheel on an angle grinder works well.
