About This Product

Romabio Classico Limewash is an authentic, slaked-lime paint that is specially formulated to create unique white wash effects for Interior and Exterior unpainted brick, stone and other masonry surfaces. This Limewash paint is easily applied as a 1-coat process to a damp surface and is washed off with a garden hose or spray water bottle to create an antique lime wash finish equal to the look in historic Europe. Unlike German Schmear technique using mortar, this paint is breathable, high UV-resistant, and will continue to calcify and harden over the years and will not peel or chip off as it is designed for durability for the exterior.


  • Specially formulated for breathability on brick, stone and other masonry surfaces
  • After 50-70% dilution with water 1 qt. bucket will make 1.5 - 1.75 qt. of paint and covers 80 - 100 sq. ft.
  • Very flat finish provides non-reflective appearance and gives the natural lime wash look of historic Europe
  • Resists UV damage, peeling or flaking, for a durable and breathable paint finish with no maintenance, unlike a mortar wash with German schmear
  • Can be removed from most masonry surfaces within 2 days after application
  • Self-priming, 1-coat process and is applied to a damp surface and sprayed off for a whitewash effect
  • Dries in as little 10-minutes and up to 60-minutes, depending on sun and temperature and will not be affected by rain or normal weather conditions after initial application
  • Non-toxic formula will not harm lawn, trees, plants and animals
  • Naturally mold-resistant and breathable reducing the buildup of stagnant moisture

Questions & Answers

Q:What’s the difference between this product & the one you sell specifically for fireplaces? Are there any special instructions for using this product on an interior, unpainted red brick fireplace? Which brush/tools do you recommend?
by|Jul 4, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  There is no difference. The fireplace kit just includes some items, such as the brush to help the project. You can purchase the Romabio Masonry Brush separately if you prefer. Always test the surface with water to be sure it can absorb it. If your surface can't absorb water readily, it won't hold the limewash either so that is the first step. If it can, dilute Classico Limewash 50% to 100% with clean water (1 part limewash to between 1/2 and 1 part water). The less water, the fuller the coverage. Then distress the areas you'd like to see the brick come thru. Contact us at info@romabio.com if you need more help.

    Q:Can the be used on pine walls that have been stained/ clear coated?
    by|Jul 4, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  No. Classico Limewash cannot be applied to pre-painted surfaces. You can use MicroGrip primer or another mineral-based primer 1st if you want to. But they will be fully opaque at that point so we would probably not suggest limewash at that point. Romabio does make interior paints. Check out romabio.com for more info.

      A:  The product works on raw natural brick only. It can't stick to any kind of synthetic materials without MicroGrip primer or another mineral-based primer.

          The product worked very well. Easy to use. I followed the instructions. Everything was going well, Until I remembered, I didn’t spray the brick with water before applying the product. I panicked called t Romabio. The number was on I can, I actually got someone to answer all my questions not an answering machine. He was very helpful assured me I was doing everything OK and in the end, it turned out beautiful. I lime washed my fireplace in about four hours. Home Depot did promise the product to arrive at a certain time and it was like four days late which kind of missed things up. But in the end, I’m happy.

          So easy to use
          I will lead this with the fact that I am not in construction, and I have no artistic or crafty skills. We bought a house that had a partial remodel. The fireplaces didn’t match the cooler tones of the house so I did some research, watched the videos, and decided to try it out. Nothing is usually as ‘easy’ as the videos show…but this was! I love how it came out. Tips: you need to wet it down again if you don’t move fast enough and I used a whisk to make sure it was blended.

            Great way to transform a concrete block wall!
            I used this on an old stained concrete block wall. This product worked out great! I started with a 2.5 L bucket of Avorio White for about 300 square feet. I didn’t quite get the hang of it - it came out very patchy and too bright. I did a second coat where I mixed 1 2.5 L container of Riposo Biege with a quart of Avorio White and it was perfect when dry. My tip would be to dilute it on the higher end for concrete blocks since they are super porous! Was best @ slightly thinner than paint.

              This worked very well to freshen up an old and stained stone fireplace. I used Riposo Beige.

              PERFECT and safe for brick
              After doing a lot of research on painting brick, I realized it probably wasnt the best option. It’s permanent, damages the brick with sealed in moisture, and loses the texture. This stuff totally transformed our house and wont allows the brick to breathe. We used sherwin williams alabaster on the siding and the avorio white is practically the same color! Check out this before and after!

                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

                  CANNOT RETOUCH
                  I had my entire home painted with this product. Some "staining" as the manufacturer called it came out from underneath. I was told by the manufacturer to use a primer over the spots, then touch up with the paint again. I touched up on the left and the right, and its darker. So the manufacturer told me to paint the entire area. When it was painted the second time the color is lighter. BE PREPARED TO SPEND MONEY
