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.

  • Resists UV damage, peeling or flaking, for a durable and breathable paint finish with no maintenance, unlike a mortar wash with German schmear
  • Easily removed with a high force pressure washer within 5-days after initial application
  • Self-priming, 1-coat process and is applied to a damp surface and sprayed off for a whitewash effect

IS THIS COLOR A CREAM OR OFF WHITE ? WILL IT GO WITH A RED ROOF ?

Hello Gin. Avorio White is an off white. We often refer to it as a neutral white because it will pull the undertones from surrounding architectural features - like your red roof. You can read more about Romabio white hues on our latest blog post: https://romabio.com/choosing-a-romabio-white/

Does this product need to be rolled on or can it be sprayed?

Asked by Makitty April 6, 2021
1
Answer

Hello Makitty. Classico Limewash is formulated to be painted on with the Romabio Large Masonry Brush, also available at Home Depot online. It can also be rolled on, using a nappy roller meant for mineral paint. It is not recommended to be sprayed on as using a cheap sprayer or wrong tip or not mixing the product well can result in a clogged sprayer. To learn about other Romabio Products that can be sprayed like Masonry Flat, visit www.romabio.com

My drab little house has been transformed into a beautiful "cottagey" home.
Lime washing my brick exterior was easier and more forgiving than painting. I am thrilled with the result. My mixture was basically 50/50 Romabio's Avario color to water. I purchased the 4 gallon size, and it was plenty for my 1140 sqft., 4 sided brick house. I've included before and after photos of my home.

Worked very well and no fumes
This product was super easy to apply and to get how I wanted it. I painted it on, then used a wet rag to wipe it off after about 35 minutes. I removed from some spots, to varying degrees, to get an aged look. I don't know how easy to remove it is, but I'm happy with the product and would recommend it. I got a pint and it was more than enough for one large fireplace. It took me a few hours. I didn't prep it much aside from vacuuming all the cobwebs.

Love, love, love my fireplace now! This product is amazing and very forgiving as well because of the ability to wipe some of the paint off. Read directions thoroughly. Will dry more opaque than what you see when it goes on. I can’t remember at the moment exactly how much I diluted the paint, it was either 50 or 75%. Do a test patch of you are not sure. It has transformed my ugly orange, brown brick and chocolate colored mortar into something beautiful. Everyone comments on how great it looks!

So easy and customizable to your taste!
This was incredibly easy to do with results that exceeded my expectations. I mixed 1:1 to cover a 1/2" concrete molded brick wall in my back hall coming from my garage that we had installed when we moved in for an "old world" look, but the jewel tone colors just didn't do it for me anymore. I bought the brush by the same company and it is expensive but worth it as it holds a ton of product in the soft bristles and you can cover a lot of area with one dip, going in with a smaller brush for the detailed areas. I also would take the smaller paint brush and just dip it in water and quickly brush it over large areas to take off excess product and let some color through when it would get too opaque. Later, I took a damp rag and roughed up some bricks here and there on the face and edges to give it a rustic vibe (which the picture doesn't really show). I feel like as it dried it continued to absorb the lime and got more opaque, so if I were to do it again I would probably just do 2:1 and it would probably have been perfect for the look I was going for.

I used it to paint a brick fireplace and I'm very happy with the results. It has a great, chalky texture. It's not really all that easy to wipe off once you apply it, so if you want some brick exposed as I did, just leave it unpainted. Quick, easy project that made a big difference

Great product for a fireplace refresh. I mixed it to a thin pancake batter consistency and used a 5/8” art brush for application in the brick lines of my fireplace. So easy!
