"German Smear" painting, which is actually a thin mortar wash coat over the brick or stone (sometimes done with whitewash or white latex paint these days), actually got started as a cheap and dirty "repair" method for very old buildings in Europe - instead of properly repointing the wall, just smearing some mortar over it to cover up the deteriorating bricks and mortar in the joints. Also became common after WWII where there was a LOT of damaged brick that needed repair, so a lot of sloppy dash-and-go brickwork and repairs were done.


Here is a previous similar question with answer _ Masonry would be the normal Search the List category, though I have heard some Faux painting people now do this too.
