After the water has been absorbed by the brick and no more puddles
are visible you can begin work. For this application a modified thinset
was used to bond deck mud (play sand mixed 4-5 parts sand to 1 part
portland cement) Un modified thinset will work fine but i chose to work
with what was on the job.
Using a medium notch trowel, 3/16" v-notch or similar cover the entire
surface of the brick with thinset. Proceed after this by covering the
thinset with deckmud quickly to prevent the thinset from drying
out or "skinning over".
