Painting with Limewash Paint

Helpful guide to mixing pigments and using limewash

Limewash, a paint used for thousands of years, is a traditional finish for lime work in homes, both inside and out. To mix and use limewash, follow these steps: mix lime putty and water in a large container; add pigment if desired; stir well; and apply the limewash to the surface using a brush. It will dry in about 24 hours and eventually gain strength and durability. Limewash is a natural, breathable finish that allows walls to absorb moisture and regulate humidity levels.
