23 Feb Lime Wash like Leanne
HOW TO DO IT
I love a lime washed wall – it brings history, texture and some character to walls. The end result is this subtle but impactful texture that feels like its been there forever. It feels cozy but cool – like you did it by mistake, which I love.
Below is a video showing the LFI technique of how we Lime Wash:
- We use Portolo Paints Lime Wash!
- Prime your walls as directed by the Website
- I don’t think there is a right or wrong way of doing this – over at team LFI we like to sing a little Kermit the frog while we brush it on like to rainbows. The brush strokes show through, that’s on purpose so perfectionist’s beware.
- It goes on dark and dries light (tricks us too!) so don’t be scared, that’s normal!
About Lime Wash
- It’s a traditional lime-based finish.
- Due to it’s high PH, Lime Wash also acts as a mild fungicide
- It is eco-friendly – containing zero VOCs.
- This organic and highly breathable finish makes Lime Wash ideal for historic restorations, interior and exterior masonry and drywall applications.
- For drywall application, first prime with our Limeproof undercoat. For a wipeable surface, seal with Portola’s Matte Wall Sealer.
