I have a 1920's brick house. Removed bricks from one part of the house to use in the front. How do I make the mortar look 90 yrs old to match the existing part of the house without waiting 90 years?

A few bricks Use standard mortar. After it dries create some mud from the dirt directly under the wall rub it into the mortar. Let it sit for a few days and wash it off.

Have a big job?
