Black with a white mask
The brick colour is distinctly anthracite to coal black as a result of a homogenous mixture of the precise proportions of manganese oxide with grey-red baking clay. A lightgrey to white top layer/coating is applied on this handmoulded brick on the basis of a cement mixture. The colour scheme is nuanced. The subtle base colour can be seen through the cement coating. The colour may change in humid conditions and after drying out the cement coating will get its possible rue colour.
