German Smear

We are starting a project that will be a cigar lounge for someone with 6 children who needs a place to escape!  The room was added onto a blue stone patio, so part of it has the red brick from the exterior now on the interior.  We want a bit of cool New york exposed brick feel so it looks like good ole German Smear may just do the trick.  What's German Smear you ask? It's the smearing of specific mortar over the brick which is then blended on and wire brushed or sanded off a bit to give a distressed look. I found some great examples of this technique and I love it! To leave or smear brick that is the questions I say smear away!!






All these great images were found on HOUZZ - HERE

  5. Oh yes, my friend:) Smear is a wonderful look! We did this to our home, I would have liked to have gone a little heavier, but the hubby isn't the fan of smear that I am...:(
    So, compromise.
    I will be on the lookout for those geraniums once your weather warms just a few more degrees!

  12. Please note that the second to last photo is not German Smear it is BioCalce Classico from ROMABIO.com/limewash. The process is far easier than German Smear since it is a paint not a thin set mortar. We know because we applied it 5 years ago and still looks great - thanks, ROMABIO
