Finish For Brick Bell

At long last I'm nearing completion of my batch box RMH.

I have built a single skin brick bell and was wanting to apply some type of satin/semi-gloss finish that would show off the varying colours of the old bricks whilst being able to cope with the temperature of the exterior of the bell. I have had various suggestions ranging from 'standard' propriety impregnator/sealing products through to boiled linseed oil.

What do members of the forum suggest?

Many thanks as always for any advice.

Thanks Thomas. Have you a preferred brand? (I'm based in the UK so I may have to find an equivalent)

Pictures will follow (hopefully!) when the RMH is finally complete and actually works...  I've been constructing this for a while and have been taking photos at various stages of the build.

Thanks again for your help.

We use a 2 part epoxy on our stone coasters and trivets called "Stone coat countertops "  from Oregon, , works very well.  Here is their website    www.stonecoatcountertops.com
