    You will need to power wash it first to get it clean

    Once you paint brick, you will always have to repaint it. Brick is coming back into style for it's ease of maintenance. Brick absorbs paint so you will have to use a lot more paint to cover if you really want to do this.

    If you mean the paint, it depends on the finish you are after and how you intend to apply it (brush, sprayer, roller?). I've painted brick with a wash using somewhat diluted paint, then wiping it with a cloth. This gives a soft look...

    If you mean the brick, it should be clean and dry first.
