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

  • 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

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 this be used on red brick & get the same color?
      by|Jun 23, 2024
      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.

            Love this product so much that I can't seem to stop using it, it's so easy to work with. I'm using it to tone down a dated and rather unattractive stone veneer. So I keep trying Romabio's various colors. Riposo beige comes out too yellow for my tastes. Avorio white is too stark. I wish Romabio offered a rosy beige. My next step will be to see if I could get something custom-mixed.

            Wish I'd known to leave well enough alone.
            I wanted to tone down the colors in my dated exterior stonework as I felt they clashed with my new roof, so I started with a few transparent coats of Avorio White, and now I wish I'd stopped there. But the product is so fun I keep playing with it. I tried Riposo Beige, but it read as yellow against the roof which read as violet. So I slapped Avorio White over that but I'm not altogether happy with it. Glad it's so easy to work with as I'm sure I'll continue tinkering until I hit the sweet spot.

              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.

                The Romabio Limewash is amazing! We’ve used it on several spaces in our home and patio. It’s so easy to apply and gives the brick a time worn appearance.

                    So easy even I did it
                    So normally I have to do things 3 times before I get it right. With this, I think I got it the 1st time! Really easy to paint on, wipe/spray off & clean up. Im so happy! I used Bianco white as I wanted it the bright white so as to match the walls. It brightened up my whole living room. Definitely the right choice! BTW - I used a quart & have alot left over. $35 paint + an old brush-boom! Saved alot of $
