Product Overview

Transform your home with the old-world European appeal of this Cristallo White Limewash Interior/Exterior Paint by Romabio Classico Limewash. Specially designed to produce a unique effect on unpainted brick, stone or other masonry surfaces, this interior/exterior slaked-lime paint is simple to apply and will last for years. You don’t need primer, and the breathable formula is non-toxic and UV resistant. After covering your selected damp surface with one coat, wash it off with a garden hose or spray bottle. This will produce that antique lime wash finish for a historic effect. This paint hardens over the years without peeling or chipping off. One coat covers 450 sq. ft. per gallon.
  • Specially formulated for breathability on brick, stone and other masonry surfaces
  • After 50-70% dilution with water 1 qt. bucket will make 1.5-2 qt. of paint and covers 80 -100 sq. ft. for 450 sq. ft. / gallon depending on surface porosity
  • 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

So easy!!
We unexpectedly uncovered old red brick in our home and wanted to update it. This product is amazing and did just that! This 10’ tall fireplace took me only an hour to complete and I’m in love!!! I diluted about 70%, and only had to do a couple touch ups!

    Covered great! The hard part was exposing the original brick, the video made it look so easy but my bricks sucked in the solution so I was scrubbing so hard ripped my fingers raw. I’d recommend not painting the ones you want exposed or at least not saturating the bricks those w the solution

    Thank you for choosing Romabio, and for taking the time to post a review of our product! We are glad you are happy with the results of your project. It is unfortunate that the application was not as you expected. For future knowledge it may help to work in smaller sections; wet the brick paint while wet and distress then move to the next small section.

      Choose Limewash not paint!
      This is a fabulous choice if you are looking to give a brick house, wall or fireplace a completely new and fresh look

      Does not work on stone backsplash
      We used this on our stone tile kitchen backsplash. My countertops and backsplash clashed and our builder choose our backsplash last minute when the tile we requested was late. Needles to say we hated it so we used this wash and even after sealing every splatter and dirt mark shoes and this is coming off where I clean. We are now removing and replacing it

            Ok, so here is our situation and how this limewash (Nube Gray) worked for us. We had a retaining wall installed when we were on vacation and came back and hated the look. It was stone wall with dark stones and white stones which gave it a look some may like, but we just didn't. We got the limewash and first tried it diluted as they prescribe, which was about 1 to 1 with water. That looked too opaque and chalky after it dried, so hosed it off, tried a bunch of dilutions to increase the transparency to let some of the stone's color show through while toning down the dark stones. Romabio isn't going to like this, but we did 1 to 6 ratio (1 quart limewash to 6 quarts water) which was just about right, could have gone more. So almost two gallons from one quart and it worked great on over 50 feet of retaining wall, all with one quart! Went back and wiped down the whiter stones to let some of the color and texture show through while leaving the dark stones as is. We didn't do the whole spraying the wall thing, just left it on except where we hand wiped the lighter stones with wet rag. Got a surprise rain storm two days later and surprisingly it only improved the look from the picture below, looks more natural now. This product is great! If you don't like the look, hose it off (a little scrubbing). If you don't like the level of opacity, add more water and try again. If you want it antiqued, hit it with your hose. Just a great solution, after paying what we did for the wall, spending a few bucks for this solution was a savior.

            The limewash was perfect for the brick fireplace. I had never painted brick before but the reviews said how easy it was with the limewash instead of paint. So glad I decided to give it a try. I used Nube Gray and Avorio White. I love they way it turned out!

            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

              I loved this product! It was easy to use and gave me just the results I was looking for. The color is just slightly creamy, not too stark white and not too beige or gray. Took lots of time to prep by taping up light weigh plastic to keep splatters down. Total application time was probably 20 minutes! Then I spent rest of day going back and wiping off here and applying more there and standing back to reassess. I even left for a couple hours and went shopping for new tchatchkes and came back and wipes off and added back.

                We did our fireplace with this and we really like it. Watch the videos so you know what to expect and how to work with it. We diluted it 75% wanting some brick color to show thru. The mix was very watery but still covered the brick really well so we still had to do a good amount of wiping off/distressing. Wait for it to dry to really see how well it covers the brick.

                Ordered the brush, bucket, stirrer, and paint online. Great packaging delivery on the paint. Had to pick up other things in store. This is so easy to use. There is no way you can make any mistakes... there is no wrong thing... after you ate done washing it, look at it in natural light and when you turn on the lights. You can see the little difference in natural light vs warm white lights. Please see my pic below! Another successful covid project. Our TV will be mounted above the fireplace in couple of days!

I waited a few minutes then rubbed off the wash from the bricks I wanted to show off. It came out beautiful! This project was the third time we used the ROMABIO Lime Wash.

                  Updated my old fireplace with the grey limewash instead of paint after reading you could remove within 5 days if you didn't like it. I was a little intimidated at first, but grew confident pretty guickly, it was so easy! I used a damp sponge to wet instead of spraying which worked fine. Initially I started with less water and found it too dark and ended up using the 1:1 ratio. Because my bricks are not even, there was no need to go back with a rag afterward to wash. A little messy, but wipes off with a wet paper towel. The fireplace is double sided, 8 ft high and the quart was plenty, though it didn't look like it in the bucket!

                    I love this product, easy to use and I love the look! Avorio White is the perfect color if you're looking for a more natural, not bright white color. I am very happy with how this turned out. Cons are that it wipes off easy... while cleaning the fireplace some ash got on the brick and now it needs to be repainted since it stripped the paint when cleaning. A tip would be to start at the top rather than the bottom which is against the label guidance. Also, don't forget to spray with water before applying, that way a little product goes a long way.

                    first time using to redo a fireplace. only used half the amount of water instead of the 1:1 ratio. it was still quite runny and dried more opaque than i anticipated. nevertheless was happy with the product. only suggestion is don't be fooled by the runny consistency. i thought i would go back and blot some off after but i was happy with the outcome. had i used more water i could have gotten by with the one quart.

                    I used the gray lime wash to give this old red brick fireplace a fresh modern look, very easy to brush on and little clean up

                    Absolutely Love!
                    We wanted to brighten up our house and after some research we decided on limewash. We decided to order 2 gallons for the front brick of our home ( only part of our home with brick). Shipping was super fast. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. My husband and I did it all in about 5 hours with a brush. We LOVE the end results. Clean up was so simple. I cannot Recommend this product enough. And at such a great price!!
