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

Questions & Answers

Q:We applied this on our exterior stone last August. We have just noticed that it is starting to peel/chip away in an area where the rain hits the stone. Has anyone dealt with this, or found solutions to fix this?

Answer This Question

A:  I’m curious to see an answer or suggestion from Romabio. We applied this several yrs ago to our exterior brick and I have to touch up many areas each yr in areas where rain hits it. Gutter overflows, windowsills, etc so I have a decent amt of work each yr

    A:  Classico Limewash® is meant to weather an patina over time. Areas that come in frequent or prolonged contact with water will show that patina faster than other areas. You can touch up the spots you feel need more coverage. After that, we recommend applying Romabio Mineral Shield to slow that process considerably. It repels water so the beauty of your finish will last longer. Go to romabio.com for more info on Mineral Shield Topcoat.

        Q:Can this be used on top of cream brick and yield a white washed look? Or does it only work on darker brick? Additionally, what are the differences in the white colors?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello. The Classico Limewash can be distressed on any brick as long as it's absorbent and previously unpainted. The difference is that you'll see the color of your current brick anywhere you distress it so if that's not the look you want, it might not be the best product. Please reach out to us at info@romabio.com and we can send you color swatch brochures to see the colors in real life.

            PERFECT and safe for brick
            After doing a lot of research on painting brick, I realized it probably wasnt the best option. It’s permanent, damages the brick with sealed in moisture, and loses the texture. This stuff totally transformed our house and wont allows the brick to breathe. We used sherwin williams alabaster on the siding and the avorio white is practically the same color! Check out this before and after!

            We are so happy that you love your final look and were able to get the look you want without compromising the health of your brick. The transformation of your home is incredible, the before and after is stunning! RomabioHC

              Pictures speak for itself.
              The secret was waiting 15-20 minutes before using the water hose to wash it out. Only con is the price as it took five buckets of 4.5 gallons too do my home that’s around 2k sq

                CANNOT RETOUCH
                I had my entire home painted with this product. Some "staining" as the manufacturer called it came out from underneath. I was told by the manufacturer to use a primer over the spots, then touch up with the paint again. I touched up on the left and the right, and its darker. So the manufacturer told me to paint the entire area. When it was painted the second time the color is lighter. BE PREPARED TO SPEND MONEY

                    Excellent Product
                    Loved applying this product. It was so easy! Mixing it, we used the lesser measure of water for a bit thicker consistency. It went on beautifully, and we did not need a second coat. Was going to distress it, but the look was so lovely, we left it as is. Coverage using that thickness was about 100 sq ft. We used a 2” brush for our fireplace, because the inexpensive $12 recommended brush we bought splattered the product everywhere! Total project time including prep and cleanup and a two inch brush was 3 hrs.

                      We love the look of our indoor fireplace. My husband and I lime washed one coat on our fireplace . Size Approx 8’ x 8’. We used one coat at a 1:1 ratio of water and lime wash. We used one coat because I liked the texture coming through. I am Not sure if I can post the pic but it looks amazing. We used 3/4 of the lime wash. East day job!!!

                      Easy to use and turned out PERFECTLY !! Not drippy if you minimize the amount of water. Also, if you just want a, "light" limewash effect, (The original stone visible.) increase the water ratio to 80% water: 20% romabio. I did that vs. wiping most of the product off. (Which wastes time and money.)

                      Hello. We are glad you got good results. What you're describing is a dilution of 400%. We have to remind folks that overdiluting the Classico Limewash will certainly get you the look you want but when you saturate the binders, the paint won't last as long as there's very little left to hold it in place. Romabio does have lime paints that can be diluted up to 300% to achieve the same look without sacrificing durability. Visit romabio.com for more info on all our different products. RomabioHC

                      Easy and beautiful
                      I’m finishing my entire house using the Avorio White. Mixing at a 1:1 ratio and slapping it on the house with a paintbrush. It’s time consuming, but yhe product is extremely easy to work with. I am a first time painter.
