Greetings Dyebrick! Limelike Fossil Gray looks amazing on our home! Thank you for your technical assistance and quick shipping when we needed help and more product. Our neighbors are in love and so are we! We live in MN with warm humid summers and harsh winters. Prior to starting our project, we hired a mason to repair some mortar/tuck pointing. He said 90% of his service work is repairing painted (sealed) brick that is deteriorating, not a good option in our climate. We are so happy to find LimeLike product that allows our brick to breathe and completely transformed our home that we purchased one year ago. Our bricks were multicolored (and loud, and so ugly) and also very coarse. When we started our project we tried the sample packages to decide color and dilution. The dilution of 1 Liter to 600g covered all of the original brick, one coat, and our end results still has varied shades of gray. Here are some photos, please disregard our landscaping, our next project:) Curt & Robyn
