Questions & Answers

Will this product work on a cultured limestone fireplace mantle?

Asked by KJ June 14, 2021
1
Answer

You can apply this to limestone as long as it is a porous unsealed stone. You can use water to test this. All you need to do is pour a small amount of water (about 3 inches in diameter) onto various sections of the surface and wait for a reaction. You can tell if the water has been absorbed into the stone because the surface will darken. If there is a sealer on the surface, you’ll need to use a xylene or lacquer thinner to remove it. Be sure to follow all of the manufacturer’s instructions regarding ventilation and extinguishing pilot lights, because xylene/lacquer thinner is very flammable! After you’ve used the xylene or lacquer thinner, follow with rubbing alcohol to remove all residue.

Can this be used on ceramic tile?

Asked by Shar June 6, 2021
1
Answer

Our Whitewash paint is not designed to be used on tile, sorry about that! It is designed to be used specifically on brick but will work on other porous surfaces.

Can i use this for a brick exterior?

Asked by JohnD May 20, 2021
1
Answer

While Brick Transformations is designed for interior applications in mind, our densely pigmented formula will have good performance on exterior brick. Applications with a lower dilution percentage (using less water) will have better long-term performance in exterior settings. Giani does not make any guarantee as to the performance of Brick Transformations on exterior brick, and exterior applications are not covered by our limited warranty, as sun and rain exposure varies for each customer. As Brick Transformations is a penetrating stain, it may fade over time, however, this can be easily renewed with another application.

Answer

This is designed to be soaked into porous stone. It will soak into it but not completely seal it.

Can this product be used on travertine tile?

Asked by Brock March 9, 2021
1
Answer

This product should work well on travertine tile as travertine is very porous. Please note we do not recommend this if it is a floor application.

Can pigment be added to give a more cream color instead of pure white?

Asked by PainterGirl March 2, 2021
1
Answer

Hello there! This product is already highly pigmented and is meant to be diluted for coverage. If your local paint professional feels comfortable tinting whitewash, you’re welcome to do so. Please note that tinting your limited warranty because we are unable to predict how it will affect the performance of the product.

Can you tint this whitewash product, if you want off-white?

Asked by Lin February 20, 2021
1
Answer

If your local paint professional feels comfortable tinting Giani Whitewash, you’re welcome to do so. Please note that tinting your Whitewash will void the limited warranty because we are unable to predict how it will affect the performance of the product. Please note that this is also a highly pigmented paint and is designed to be diluted prior to coverage. This may cause tinting to be more difficult.

Do I need to use any water if I want a "whiter" whitewash effect?

Asked by jillw January 9, 2021
2
Answers

To create a whiter look you will want to use a 2:1 paint and water ratio.

Does this paint contain lime like the old fashioned recipe calls for?

Asked by Sherry November 24, 2020
1
Answer

Our paints are very safe water based acrylic paints!

Can this be used to white wash wood for a shiplap wall?

Asked by Lisa November 19, 2020
1
Answer

Our Whitewash paint is a heavily pigmented formula that is meant to be diluted and applied over a porous stone. The densely pigmented formula is easily absorbed into porous stone once diluted. This could potentially work over your ship lap wood as long as it is unsealed. Unfortunately we have not tested this specific application and therefore cannot warrant it.

Wow! This was amazing, and so easy to use.
I used the Giana White Wash kit to renew the brick around my fire place. This instructions were excellent, and the oroduct was very easy to use.
by Venita
updated fireplace
Great inexpensive way to update and modernize an old beat up looking fireplace. I didn't want too much of the brick to show through so I only added 8oz of water with the 1 can of paint, and I did not wipe the paint at all as I was painting. I, like most people probably thought that there was no way the tiny can would be enough to cover my fireplace. Don't worry, not only was it enough but I had a good amount left over.

I prepped my fireplace as the directions stated, measured it out to under 70 sq. feet. I thinned the paint the smallest amount for the thickest whitewash, painted it on, did not use a rag to wipe off as I wanted the heavier coating. Then, ran out of paint just when I was over half done, disappointing. Had to order a second can of paint and wait over a week for it to be delivered. Ultimately, I love the final product, but only 4 stars due to the time to finish.

This brick whitewash paint exceeded my expectations! It worked sooo well. We watered down 1 to 1 and then brushed and rolled it on to our fireplace. It looks great!

Excellent.............
My only problem was that I kept feeling I was not going to have enough...but I just made it. I originally got confused on how much water to add... bottom line .. at least 1 can full of water... if not a little bit more.........added to the pint of paint. You can always add another coat...if too white.. a wet rag will lighten it up. It took me one whole side of Fireplace to get the hang of it. But it always dries evenly. Easy to wipe off floor. Just make sure bricks are clean.

It is thick. Half water half paint did the job. Only one can needed for large fireplaces. No wrags needed. Just make sure you clean your brick thoroughly before painting.

Can was smaller than expected so was skeptical if it would be enough however you need to mix it with water and it was a perfect amount. Even had a little left over....Like most people state in videos, start light and then id you need it more whiter than go back over it. It was a day's project but so worth it, completely transformed our living room.
