Modern lime paint for interior and exterior walls that allows buildings to breathe and salts to pass through, by combining naturally hydraulic and non hydraulic limewash bound with acrylic.
This two component system comprises a pot of basic limewash to which a bag(s) of powder pigment/activator is mixed in to make either 4L or 8L of coloured paint. Select either 4L or 8L size below in your chosen colour.
If you do not require both components – or want to create your own shade – it is possible to buy the basic limewash in 3L and 6L size pots and/or individual pigment bags.
See below for more details.
Before application, the painting surface must be clean and dry, with no traces of dirt or debris.
Once mixed together, this paint will start to set – carry out preparation before mixing. Ensure surface is free of all flaking paint, dust and loose paper. Prepare any uneven surfaces with lime plaster or mortar. Dampen any porous surfaces with water. For damp walls, prime with pure limewash (sold separately) and allow a few days before applying Lime Earth Paints. Allow a minimum of two weeks for newly lime-plastered walls to dry and one week for gypsum plastered walls, before applying Lime Earth Paint. Mix any settled lime putty back into a smooth limewash in the tub before carefully adding contents of colour bag, a little at a time, mixing the two together.
Apply by brushing onto the wall in different directions. Avoid cutting in around edges and always paint an entire wall in one go to avoid join marks.
Coverage varies from 4 – 8 sqm per litre, depending on texture and absorbency of substrate. Lime Earth Paint normally covers with just one coat.
