Mortar Choices

The colour of the mortar can change the look of the brick. Do you want to blend with the brick or contrast ? eg. Off white mortar to contrast.  Also it makes a difference if you rake, flush or iron the joint. Rake makes the brick look darker and Flush makes the brick look lighter.  An ironed joint gives a refined look when you have a straight edge brick, such as in a heritage style brick type eg. Austral Bowral Blue.
