Lime Wash


What is limewash?

A unique lime based coating that creates a soft, weathered, Mediterranean patina. No odor and zero VOC. The lime 'blooms' to create color variation. Streaking around moldings is a characteristic of this finish. Limewash is made from slaked lime which after applied will gently bloom to the surface. Limewash is not as thick as acrylic paint, it has the similar consistency of a milk shake. 

Limewash contains no acrylic like modern paints, it is a decorative coating meant for raw plaster or properly sealed (Limeproof Undercoat Sealer)

What is limewash paint?

Lime Paints or Limewash Paints are typically lower quality, water based paints that have been mixed with hydraulic lime.  Hydraulic lime hardens in water making lime paints thicker and putty like when they are in the can.  Once they are applied the Lime Paints tend to have a powdery dusty finish.  They will be extremely difficult to repaint because of this powdery finish.

Sydney Harbour's Lime Wash products are true lime based limewash products not to be confused for the water based "limewash paint" alternatives on the market. 

How to limewash?

Apply two coats using a 5-inch block brush in a random multi-directional pattern, keeping a wet edge, cutting in progressively. Not suitable to roll or spray.

Exterior Application requires Curing with water: Mist spray to dampen, allow to dry. Repeat a minimum of six times.
