Need some help identifying this process

Hi all, first post. Glad I found this forum!

I am trying to identify a technique for brick finishing and am coming up with deadends. It is essentially a simple brick and mortor installation where the mortar is set flush to the brick surface and then the entire wall is coated with a light wash of mortar.

It gives you a somwhat smooth surface in which you can see some of the brick and mortar joint texture through the "wash" coat of mortar. Here is a picture. [URL=http://home.comcast.net/~mjanowak111/archive015.JPG[/URL]

I have not been able to identify the technique and it is somewhat new to our area (Michigan), or at least as far as I can tell. We plan to use this on our home that is starting construction very soon.

BTW, it may not look like the surface of that house is smooth, but it most certainly is. I walked right up to it and touched it.
