Sydney Harbour Paint Company's Limewash: Transform Your Space with Timeless Elegance

Limewash is more than just a paint; it's a tradition, a way to bring the charming, weathered patina of the Mediterranean into your home or outdoor spaces. Sydney Harbour Paint Company's Limewash, available in an astonishing 365 colors, provides an authentic, eco-friendly, and odorless lime-based coating that creates a soft, unique, and weathered finish. Dive into the timeless art of Limewash and discover its versatile applications for both exteriors and interiors.

What is Limewash?

Limewash is a unique lime-based coating that emulates the soft, weathered patina often found on buildings throughout the Mediterranean. Sydney Harbour's Original Limewash is a traditional recipe, designed to create a distinct, organic finish. It's free from odors and VOCs, and its unique formula allows the lime to "bloom" on the surface, producing delightful color variations. Streaking around moldings is a characteristic feature of this finish. Limewash is made from slaked lime, and its consistency is similar to that of a milkshake.

Unlike modern acrylic paints, Limewash is not as thick and is intended for use on raw plaster or surfaces properly sealed with the Limeproof Undercoat Sealer.

What Sets Our Limewash Apart?

Sydney Harbour's Limewash products are true lime-based Limewash, distinct from water-based "limewash paint" alternatives on the market. While other paints may mix hydraulic lime with water-based paints, creating a thicker and powdery finish, our Limewash remains authentic, eco-friendly, and produces the soft Mediterranean patina it's known for.
