LIME PAINT

LIME PAINT

     Limewash paint has been used in Latvia since the Middle Ages. Traditional limewash is made from natural lime thinned with water and natural pigments. Lime works as a binding and filling agent. One of the most appreciated characteristics of limewash is its lively look thanks to the slightly uneven texture.

   Limewash is environmentally friendly, has good coverage abilities and it creates a matte surface. It can be used both indoors and outdoors and is waterproof. Limewash is best to be applied in several thin layers no more than one layer per day. It’s best applied on porous surfaces, such as plaster. 

     

     Lime paint with added methyl cellulose can be applied to many different surfaces due to its binding and adhesive capabilities: mineral plasters, concrete, stone, plasterboard. It is not suitable for surfaces exposed to wear load. 

 

     1l of lime paint with methyl cellulose covers 4-6m² in one layer. We recommend applying 2 layers. Price: 6-12 €/l + VAT (price depends on the tone intensity)

     1l of limewash covers 2m² in one layer. We recommend applying it in 2-5 layers.

Price: 2-4 €/l + VAT (price depends on the tone intensity)

The best result can be achieved in wet rather than sunny weather, because lime reacts with carbon dioxide in a humid environment and the paint hardens evenly.

Lime paint with methyl cellulose additive can be applied in a thicker layer, that way creating a more intense tone.

We offer both limewash and lime paint with methyl cellulose additive, as well as textured lime paint.

 COLOR SCALE

This scale consists of the most popular tones ordered during our years of work. The names of the colours refer to the first clients who chose the respective hue: name of the client, the place of the object, the mineral pigment used or other associations.

NCS codes are matched as close to the sample as possible. However there could still be slight tonal differences.

Choose the colour based on its covering ability, name, sequence number or NCS code.
