Dealing with colour variation
Part of the beauty of clay bricks is that no two are identical. The kiln firing process, as well as the raw materials, can create a natural colour and texture variation – not only within packs, but also from pack to pack. To ensure an even colour distribution, it’s important that your bricklayer blends bricks from multiple packs during laying. The recommended method for this is to select units from down and across three to six open packs. By mixing the bricks among themselves, any colour variation between packs will be dealt with correctly.
