There are several ways to point bricks:
1. Use a pointing tool and trowel to use mortar around the bricks and press them together.
2. Use a rubber mallet to tap the bricks into place.
3. Create a mortar mix by combining Portland cement, sand, and water. Use a pointing trowel to spread the mortar over the brickwork.
4. Clean the brick joints using a stiff-bristled wire brush.
5. Brush away all debris from the brick work and joints.
6. Wet the brickwork with a garden hose (or mister) to help the new mortar set.
7. Apply a second coat of mortar if necessary.
8. Allow the new joint to dry for at least 24 hours before painting or sealing.
