The previous owner of my home used Liquid Nails to glue Tile to my fireplace surround. I pulled the tile off to reveal the original brick, but now I want to either get the liquid nails off or re-finish the surface to maintain the brick look. The Bricks are scored so when I heat and try to remove the Liquid Nails I take some of the brick with it. So even if I can get all of the liquid nails off, the bricks will have large dents in the scoring where the liquid nails once was. If I can't get the liquid nails off without doing damage to the brick, is there a technique I could use to re-surface the bricks with an extra layer of brick like material (not structural, aesthetic) to cover the liquid nails and the other damage already on the surface without losing the brick look?
