Romabio Lime Slurry is an authentic, Italian lime paint used for beautiful, textured finishes, ideal for unpainted and absorbent brick, stone, or masonry surfaces. At first glance, the product looks dense - because it comes concentrated. But slight dilution with water (5-8% dilution) is enough to make the viscosity perfect for ease-of-use, high coverage, and Romabio’s distinguished flat, European finish. Our unique formulation allows Romabio Lime Slurry to harden like a plaster but be easily applied like our other masonry paints.
DAMPEN THE SURFACE - Properly prepare and clean surface with water, prior to application. Dampen the wall to be painted (wet but not dripping) and keep damp as necessary, especially in high heat and direct sunlight.
PAINT May be diluted 5-8%. Apply the 1st coat of diluted paint from bottom to top of the wall with the Romabio Large Masonry Brush in a horizontal pattern taking care to apply the product in the brick joints. Prior to applying the 2nd coat of Romabio Lime Slurry, make sure to wet the wall surface again. 2nd coat apply as 1st coat. See Lime Slurry TDS for more info.
For Interior or Exterior applications of Romabio Lime Slurry where the base of the masonry surface is sealed or has been pre-painted and is unabsorbent, use one coat of Romabio MicroGrip or Medium Grip Primers, first.
DRY TIME The full carbonation of Romabio Lime Slurry will be reached at 20 – 25 days, at the earliest, after initial application (68 °F- RH 60%) under ideal conditions.

Two-coat, easy application process for typical Lime Slurry applications. For a flushed, artistic finish or for highly recessed mortar joints, apply a pre-coat of Romabio Marmorino GF. This will allow for artistic flexibility. Brush on one (1) coat of Marmorino GF into the mortar joints and allow to dry overnight before proceeding to the steps below.
