About This Product

ROMABIO Classico Limewash is a slow-set, slaked-lime paint that is specially formulated to create unique white wash effects for Interior and Exterior 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 smear 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 smear
  • 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
  • Soap and water cleanup cuts time in half and does not affect the environment
  • Zero-VOC formula minimizes ill-health effects
  • Concentrated formula reduces carbon footprint by up to 40%
  • Slow-set technology specially formulated to be antiqued and whitewashed, yet still creates a long-lasting finish

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.

    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.

      Q:Can this be used on red brick & get the same color?

      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  At 50% dilution (1 part product to 1/2 part water) you should get full coverage in the color you choose. You can then distress the areas you may want to still see brick come thru. Results can vary depending on the absorbency of your brick but that's the typical outcome.

          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.

              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.

              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.
