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.
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.
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.
This is designed to be soaked into porous stone. It will soak into it but not completely seal it.
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.
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.
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.
To create a whiter look you will want to use a 2:1 paint and water ratio.
Our paints are very safe water based acrylic paints!
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.
