Natural Limewash is a genuine, European slaked lime paint with only natural mineral ingredients. It is a concentrated finish designed for interior use. The paint develops a soft patina and slightly mottled appearance when hand brushed. The luxurious finish allows for the lime to “bloom” through the dried paint resulting in depth and texture as if it has been weathered for decades. The alluring finish is graceful and compliments any décor, is always one-of-a-kind and cannot be duplicated by ordinary paints.
Limewash is extremely healthy to use and is earth friendly. It contains no added volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and no allergens. It meets or exceeds all local, state, or national environmental guidelines. Manufacturing processes are designed with minimum impact on the environment. Limewash is also vapor permeable and allows indoor walls to breathe naturally to remain drier and provide a healthier indoor environment.
Use on interior walls and ceilings of masonry, brick, stucco, drywall and plaster. Previously painted surfaces require the use of Mineral Primer to create a porous mineral surface for the Limewash to bond with. Self-priming on bare and porous masonry, drywall and plaster. Not recommended for wet or splash areas in kitchens, bathrooms or around other water features. It may also be used on interior wood that will not receive traffic or handling, such as beams or ceilings, when a limewashed matte finish is desired. Not for use on doors, windows, trim, cabinets or floors. Finish with Clear Matte Flat Sealer for a more durable finish in higher traffic areas.
