Matching Paint on Dark Red Brick?!?!

Hello!

The previous owners of our home painted the exterior brick and mortar a darker red color. There are several spots that are missing this paint or have uneven tones. (see above picture for tiny example) I am trying to determine what type of paint this is, and how I can color match it. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I don't see anything in the picture that resembles paint. If there is something on it, maybe they tried spraying it with a semi transparent deck stain. Why anyone would do that is beyond me.

Haha! I agree. There is some semi transparent concrete stain that they left behind from Quickrete. I wonder if that is it.

You picture is too close to really tell what you have. Try sending another picture showing a broader area.
