If you do not feel confident enough to start on your brickwork or masonry then try practising using just clean water, this will give you a good ‘feel’ for how the tint will perform. However, remember to let these areas fully dry out prior to carrying out any tinting work.

Dyebrick should not be applied to damp or wet masonry.
