Interior Lime Wash
Interior lime wash is lime putty plaster from lime deposits from all over the world mixed on the job site with colorants and water. It's applied to the wall with large brushes in multiple coats. It's not caustic to skin or eyes and has a pleasant odor.
For new or old drywall and previously painted surfaces after priming. It is much stronger than paint. It is easily repairable.
Different colors can be combined for beautiful effects and can be polished to a high gloss.
Appearance is opaque with subtle mottling that will last for decades.
Subtle mottling is what many faux finishes are attempting to emulate.
Lime wash is a "green" product allowing porous walls to breath.
Exterior lime wash for brick, concrete and stucco.
This lime wash plaster is from a United States based wood kiln fired lime foundry. For any exterior porous surface.
This is a great way to update old stucco (not painted), completely cover old brick and concrete walls. Because the coats are relatively thin/ transparent it is easy to build opacity to the desired level. Add coats and it hides more/ blocks out more of the color of brick, stone or concrete. Minimum 3 coats up to 8 or more.
