Lime wash is made with microfiltered high quality hydrated lime and powdered marble. This is a natural product that produces soft patina looks characteristic of ‘old world’ lime wash in Ancient Italy. The high percentage of lime in our wash allows for a more translucent finish that ensures you can create beautiful handcrafted finishes. Lime wash is designed to be used on interior and exterior absorbent horizontal surfaces and can be layered to create many different colors and patterns. This product can be used over many absorbent masonry surfaces without a primer, including lime based and cement plasters, and also over drywall after applying one coat of our lime wash primer. All our wall plasters can be lime washed except microcement and polished marble and Tintoretto. Lime wash can be sealed with a penetrating sealer, soap and or wax, or left unsealed for future coats to be applied later.
Lime wash replaces conventional acrylic paints and can be applied to a soft sheen, matte finish or burnished while still wet to create more of a polished finish. Lime wash is a breathable finish that is mold and mildew resistant and will maintain the health of your home; moreover is applied in a minimum of 2-3 coats with many different artistic techniques.
