    Use Romabio Limewash on Any Brick or Masonry Surface, Including Completely Painted Brick

    For both interiors and exteriors, this authentic slaked lime paint is ideal for brick and stone limewash applications for artisan finishes and antique patinas. Romabio has developed a lime paint specially formulated for superior coverage with no wash off that will not flake or peel. Classico Limewash can be applied directly to all interior non-painted wood species without a primer, as a decorative effect that can be easily sanded and manipulated to create ceruse finishes and antique "brick peeking" effects. This paint product is not oil-proof and can be damaged by foods, greases, body oils, color crayons or washable colored markers. Cleaning may damage or change the sheen of the paint. Classico Limewash interior exterior paint can be used as flat finish paint for full coverage for brick, stone, stucco, lime plaster finishes and some wood products.

  • Application

    Coverage - Approximately 1,000 ft2 – 2,000 ft2 per 15-liter bucket diluted to instructions for a one (1) coat application. Applications on virgin surfaces will absorb more paint. On smooth and consolidated surfaces predict higher coverage.

    15-liter - 1,000-2,000 ft2

    2.5-liter - 166-333 ft2

    1-liter - 66-133 ft2

    Dilution - Romabio Limewash may be applied at different dilution rates. Please test different dilution rates until you are happy with the results. 3-parts Limewash to 1-part water will create a more solid, opaque, limewash coating. 2-parts Limewash to 1-part water will still have more limewash color show but you may begin to see more of the brick show through. 1-parts Limewash to 1-part water will create a transparent limewash. This dilution rate will leave more of your brick or stone exposed.

    Pre-Wetting - For brick or stone, it is required to pre-wet all masonry surfaces with water thoroughly to facilitate the slow drying of the limewash. This also assists limewash paints to absorb deeper into the masonry surface for maximum durability. Do not apply paint to overly wet/dripping surfaces. Brick walls should be wetted down with water several times.

    Brushing or Rolling - Apply the pre-diluted Classico Limewash Interior/Exterior with a large masonry brush, starting the application at the top of the pre-dampened wall, working with the brush or roll left to right, right to left (for brick courses), and for stone apply in a criss-cross pattern. Back brush as necessary to remove runs from the vertical mortar joints, and continue this application as rapidly as possible, moving down the wall to the ground level. The time allowance for a whole wall coverage with limewash is generally 30 - 40 minutes. Try to work in whole wall sections, corner to corner, top to bottom. We recommend using the Romabio Large Masonry Brush, available here.

    Antique Effects - Allow newly applied limewash to set 10-40 minutes depending on temperature and sun. The wash off process can begin when bricks appear half wet/half dry before the painted surface is completely dry to the touch. Typical antique methods to create unique wash effects, such as whitewashed brick, are based on observations of time-worn lime painted surfaces. Being that environmental erosion by sun, wind, rain, occurs more rapidly on brick or stone areas not protected by eve overhangs and roofs, typically the upper half sections of the walls will be less worn than the bottom half sections of the wall toward the ground (where runoff from the wall above and back splashing from the ground cause deterioration to occur more rapidly). It is important that the overall antique look of the limewash is gradual and appears as natural brick exposed to weathering.

    Drying Time - Ideal drying time is at least 1 – 2 hours to obtain a very flat finish. With lower temperatures and humidity more time may be needed. Classico Limewash interior exterior paint can be wiped or washed off immediately after application or you can remove the entire application up to 2 days with the use of a high force pressure washer. Test on various surfaces and locations without having to commit to completely painted brick.

    Clean Up - Sprayer, brush, roller, rags, or sponges should be cleaned immediately after use with water and a mild detergent or dish soap.
