Authentic slaked lime 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.
APPLICATION: Can be applied to drywall, plaster, masonry, brick, stone and previously painted surfaces. The lime paint comes in a ready-mixed form, it only requires good stirring before use, preferably with an electric paddle mixer. It is typically applied in two coats using a block brush with multi-directional strokes. Ideally allow lime paint to dry 12 hours or more in between coats.
Prime with Color Atelier Mineral Primer for Lime as needed.
If applied over an existing smooth plaster wall that is absorbent, it can be polished to a shine much like a plaster finish.
A truly wonderful traditional material that ages beautifully, and will continue to patina years after.
COVERAGE: 1 gallon covers approximately 400 sq ft in 1 coat, depending on the surface and application, is usually applied in 2 coats.
