Authentic slaked limewash paint that gives a softly textured appearance and matte finish in a beautiful range of colors. Bonds to the surface through a natural process resulting in a durable, breathable coating. Can be applied to drywall, plaster, masonry, brick, stone and previously painted surfaces. A brush-applied natural mineral based coating dries to create a beautiful weathered patina with soft tonal variations.
Prime with Color Atelier Matte Primer for Lime as needed.
In high moisture or high traffic areas, we recommend finishing the Lime Paint with Color Atelier Sealers. The sealer will give protection and is easily cleanable.
If applied over an existing smooth plaster wall, our lime paint can be polished to a shine much like a plaster finish.
Whites and lighter colors have a more subtle movement quality in the finish, whereas darker colors have a more textured appearance to them. In order to increase the movements with light colors, similar to a plaster aesthetic, layering two shades in the application is a helpful method; usually a darker color goes on the first coat and the lighter color goes on top as the second coat.
