Do you happen to know what product you used and about how much it costs? We were going to paint our ugly old orangey colored brick but if I could get it a different color that would be great! Thanks!

As far as the mortar, a lot of humans just stain over it too. It's just not account the agitation to affectation it off or use a adhesive or wax to repel the stain. Short nap rollers would be account trying. I did a chase like this with paint. I sprayed the adhesive with a gray and stipple brushed every individual abhorrent brick. It looked absolute nice if it was done, but my eyeballs were bridge by the time I was done. I couldn't brainstorm accomplishing an absolute abode like that.

We would be very interested in knowing what specific stain products people were happy with - particularly the one rated as 'fantastic' in the post above

Default stain brick

I have a ranch home that was built in the 60's. Three quarters of the house is red brick and one quarter is angelstone with a pink running through it. I would love to stain the angelstone to match the mortar inbetween the red brick. I thought that a green gray stain would soften the angelstone. Has anyone ever tried to stain angelstone? I too would like a recomendation on a specific product that has worked well on staining brick.
