Bricks. Tip to give your brick wall a facelift

If your brick is looking a little rough, give it new color using this tip. Use a gallon of hot water and an ounce of glue. Add about half a cup of alum, half a cup of venetian red paint, and a cup of brown paint. Mixed into hot water, mix all the colors completly in the water and then use a paint brush and wash down the brick entirely.
