    Q:Is there an expiration date on the lime wash? I have 1/2 gallon left from a previous project 4 years ago.
    by|Apr 3, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Classico Limewash has a pretty long shelf life it it's stored properly, undiluted and sealed well to prevent air from getting inside. You'll know the paint is no longer viable if there is any discoloration or odor. Healthy lime paints have virtually no odor.

      Q:I’m looking for a product that will give me that whitewashed look —you can still see some of the dark brick. Would this work?
      by|Apr 2, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Great question! We have a product designed for that called Venetian Glaze it's lime paint but stronger than Classico Limewash so you can dilute it up to 300% and it will still hold. You can get the look with Classico Limewash but if you dilute it more than 100%, it can saturate the binders making it less likely to form a strong bond so you might need to do more frequent touch-ups or refreshes. Reach out to us at info@romabio.com if you have more questions.

        Q:Can this be used on top of cream brick and yield a white washed look? Or does it only work on darker brick? Additionally, what are the differences in the white colors?
        by|Mar 23, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello. The Classico Limewash can be distressed on any brick as long as it's absorbent and previously unpainted. The difference is that you'll see the color of your current brick anywhere you distress it so if that's not the look you want, it might not be the best product. Please reach out to us at info@romabio.com and we can send you color swatch brochures to see the colors in real life.

          Huge bang for your buck!! My fireplace went from a dark, heavy-looking red brick to a bright and stunning work of art in 4-5 hours. You can apply the limestone in a heavier manner thus giving a uniformly opaque look if you like. I instead chose to wipe some bricks/areas down to give a look of natural variance amongst the bricks. It is stunning! I wish I could upload a before/after pic to post. It looks like a $1500+ improvement (but only cost a fraction of that amount). I used the big can and have half left over (coverage: hearth to 8ft ceilings). Sooo simple to use. It took a week to arrive, so I used the extra time to brush down the dry brick w a stiff brush, then vac.

          Pictures speak for itself.
          The secret was waiting 15-20 minutes before using the water hose to wash it out. Only con is the price as it took five buckets of 4.5 gallons too do my home that’s around 2k sq

              Lime wash turned yellow
              Prepared and clean fireplace only to lime wash it and turned yellow. I got the white one to match home remodel and now I have a yellow fireplace.

              Hi Beto. We're sorry you're having a tough time with your brick. Brick is very absorbent and can wick moisture or retain vapor residues, such as oils or tannins. Manganese is probably the most common stain on brick because it happens at the manufacturing stage when the bricks are exposed to acid during production. Unfortunately, this outcome is tough to see on raw brick or stone and can’t be predicted before or during the application of any paint product. We do have solution in cases where this happens. Reach out to our team at info@romabio.com. RomabioHC
                Wonderful product! Easy to mix and apply. So many compliments on what a difference it made to our home.
