Help with painting masonry following damp coarse

by Helen
(Birmingham, UK)

Had the damp coarse completed 2 years ago. Subsequently the house has been rendered down to the damp coarse. I'd now like to seal/protect the brickwork underneath the damp coarse drill points. However, I'm unsure what paints I can apply that won't affect the damp coarse? Also is it best to wait until the summer and the bricks are dry before applying any paint?

The paint will adhere better if the surface is dry, but if you must paint when whet, talk to your local Hardware store manager and ask him to help you find the proper paint for the job.
