Limewash is one of the earliest forms of paint and has been used for thousands of years. It is a beautiful material which remains attractive as it gradually ages. It develops a unique patina unrivalled by modern paints. Limewash is highly vapour permeable which prevents moisture being trapped within the substrate and allows the building to breathe.
Our Heritage Limewash is pure without any additions. It has an ultra-fine suspension of lime. The finer particles give better adhesion to the substrate resulting in a longer lasting more durable finish.
On new work, we recommend a minimum of 3 coats. Previously limewashed surfaces may only require 1 or 2 coats.
Where to buy
