How to apply a rustic cement finish to an exterior brick wall:
Step 1: While wearing your PJ's, mix up a wheel barrow of cement...
Step 2: With an experienced helper, go through a run-through of proper application technique. (By this time, you should have gotten dressed for the day.)
Step 3: Grab the cement spatula in an upward-facing position and fill it with cement.
Step 4: In a quick, sudden motion, fling the cement onto the wall. (You may still need hands-on assistance from your experienced helper at this point.)
Step 5: Once cement is applied, manipulate by hand with the spatula until the desired rustic finish is obtained.
