Total Wall Care Colour Matching Brick Tint enables both the competent DIYer and the professional contractor to carry out brick tinting without changing the physical properties, texture or character of the original material.

Available in a wide range of colours, the “shake to use” solution stains the brick to form a permanent, inseparable, vapour permeable bond which allows the brick to breathe, and will not flake like paint. It can also be used on porous natural stone, concrete and mortar bed joints.

Better for the Environment

Total Wall Care tints are inorganic, contain zero VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), and contains no solvents or petrochemicals.

Quick & Easy

The quickest and easiest way to dye brick.

Due to the limited availability of the original bricks, repairs and improvements to buildings are often carried out with mismatched bricks, leaving the property looking unsightly. With Total Wall Care Colour Matching Tints this problem can be rectified easily.

As long as the texture of the new brick is close to that of the old, and ideally, a lighter colour, our range of brick tint colours are the perfect solution to stain the bricks to match the existing. New bricks can also be made to look old with our Soot Wash and Lime Wash.

Our ready to use brick matching tints are available in handy 300ml, 1 litre, 2.5 litre and 5 litre containers of pre-mixed solution, which can be used outdoor and indoor. With Total Wall Care Brick Tint, there’s no need to follow any instructions to combine the components of the product. Simply shake the jerry can and it’s ready to use. Each litre of solution can be diluted to create a maximum of 3L of brick dye.

Available in 75ml, non-permanent, sample pots allowing the user to carry out test brick staining for colour matching that can then be removed with a pressure washer**.

Also available in 3 colour, 6 colour and 12 colour 300ml multipacks

For all solid colours the tint is simply applied using a clean paint brush.

For Soot Wash and Lime Wash, techniques such as sponging, stippling and even spraying can be used to replicate ageing and carbonation.

These techniques can also be used to layer colours to replicate natural discolouration and colour variations within single bricks.

Note: Although the product is not recommended for use on horizontal surfaces, it can be used as long as an appropriate sealant is used once the tint has fully dried.


The pre-coloured, “liquid-glass” tinting solution can be diluted with water to a maximum ratio of 1 part tint to 2 parts water to obtain different shades.

Unlike paint which coats the surface and stops it from breathing, Total Wall Care Colour Matching Tints are absorbed into the brick, and recolour mismatched bricks by forming a permanent, vapour permeable bond, retaining both its texture and natural characteristics. Allowing walls to breathe is extremely important to prevent issues with damp.

Total Wall Care Brick Tint can be used on any porous building material such a brick, natural stone, mortar joints and concrete. It is unsuitable for “closed” materials such as engineering bricks and marble or any waterproof surfaces or surfaces that have previously been treated with waterproofing.

TIP: To check whether your brick or stone is suitable for colour staining simply splash a small amount of water onto the surface. If the water beads up and runs off, the material cannot be stained. If it remains wet it can.

More Information:


1L of brick stain will tint approximately 20-25m2 of brickwork. However, the exact coverage rate will depend on the porosity of the bricks and the depth of colour desired. We recommend a trial application to determine precise coverage rates and shade.

Bespoke Colour Matching

If we are unable to match your sample from our standard colour range, it might be possible to create a custom colour specific to your needs. Please call to discuss timing, costs and minimum order quantities.


** The 75ml Sample pots do not contain a fixative and will only provide a temporary tint. Following application, the test area should be washed with water, preferably using a pressure washer – especially on textured bricks. Due to the fine pigment particles contained within the brick tint solution, some small residue may remain in heavily textured areas or crevices.
