Hello, I have a wall closing hideous old red brick that I dress like a millstone. But how much to hold them? With normal concrete? Mortar? cement prompt? Thank you very much for your answers, it's pretty urgent

you say millstone rather than siding

you need a good ground base (foundations) and you ride your new wall in front of the brick.
you do not stick your brick wall.
and you ride them like a normal wall, ie with mortar

previously endured the wall with plaster, which would allow me to have a uniform surface.
Then I would use depréférence decorative stones so that I do to having to build a foundation.
To paste these stones, since their "weak" thick cement glue should do the trick.

Finally j'uniformiserais ciment-colle/pierres color with a patina, or using mortar ready adapted to the color of my stones.

But if you really want to use blocks then follow the wise counsel of Frmu.

Good luck
