Question Marbling a Fireplace

I am trying to marble a fireplace that has unfinished brick up. Do I marble right over the brick or do I get some rock board and marble over that. Another question, do I use silicon or mortar on the marble. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could do the arch in the fireplace to make it look good? Thanks.

Normally you can screed a coat of thinset over the brick to make a level surface. Building with several coats. Use a good quality thinset such as FullFlex white (TEC) to apply the marble. Many mastics can penetrate the stone and stain.
