With a very small paint brush
Despite all the over sealing done on this wall the bricks still bled into the grouting. Now it's all tastefully pinkish. Time to put on two pairs of specs and touch up a little here and there - mumble, mumble, mumble

This is the "after" picture and not the "before" isn't it? Because it looks fine to me. Or my eyes are worst than I thought they were.

It looks good - I have always wanted to try herring bone bricking but had the nerve - yet.

Surely over 5oo years the mortar would look less white anyway?

Prthee forgive me sweet lady, but have you checked your almanac? The date is 1616 so the pointing wouldst be of a much lesser age.
Anyhoo it wouldn't be pink which is what the bleed from the edges of the egg box bricks has caused to happen :(
This is going to sound like "it was only a very little baby" type of conversation - But ma'am I only painted a very little of the pink and made it white again ;)
