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

  • Resists UV damage, peeling or flaking, for a durable and breathable paint finish with no maintenance, unlike a mortar wash with German schmear

Are there any special procedures to us this product on an exterior concrete block retaining wall?

Make sure you clean "pressure wash" the project really well so the product can penetrate the pores. Youtube has some really helpful videos on projects that came out great. Also I'm sure the label gives directions also.

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

It’s off white. Should look good with any color roof.

WILL THIS COLOR GO WELL WITH RED ROOF ?

Answer

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/

Can I use this on a porous tile countertop?

Asked by krockel April 27, 2021

No, it’s crush limestone and a porous material it will break down on a flat surface.

Can this be used on a brick walking pathway?

Asked by Cfrye April 26, 2021

Answers

No. This is a decorative finish which would wear off when scuffed by shoes. Meant for walls.

Can I use this on wood beams and will the grain show through?

It depends on the wood and if it's natural or sealed. Classico Limewash is formulated for unsealed and nonpainted brick, stone, or masonry. Some artists use it on unsealed, natural wood.

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!

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.
