What type of mortar for decorative arch?
 
What kind of mortar should I use for the decorative arch? I assume that I don't need to use refractory mortar. It looks like there are different types of standard brick mortar, and I was wondering which I should use.

My intended end result is to look something like TheBadger's arch:
PhotoPlog - Insulation

Thank you,
Stephen

Stephen, this might be a little late, but many people have succesfully used standard Type S mortar for the decorative arch.

Thanks, Daren. That's what I ended up getting.

I knew this was a really basic question, but I didn't want to do a lot of work only to find that I chose the wrong product.

Anyhow, thanks so much for responding!

Cheers,
Stephen
