A: Hi Dawn. Using Classico Limewash on raw, unpainted, unsealed wood has been done been the application is very dependent on where you are applying it and what look you are trying to get. Reach out to customer support at email@example.com so they can advise if it will work for your project.
A: Yes, It works fine for that purpose.
A: Hi Rachel, No. We would not recommend Classico Limewash® on a high traffic or horizontal surface such as a countertop. It's not a washable finish and we don't offer a product currently that could seal it for that purpose.
A: Hi Tammy. Classico Limewash is not flammable so it's safe to use inside a firebox and therefore near a wood burning insert. But it will char so if it gets near flames, so it will most likely show the effects of soot and smoke, like most surfaces would.
A: If the surface is natural and absorbent, it can work. However, a backsplash can get messy and need cleaning. This is NOT a washable finish so it would need frequent touch-ups. As far as your question about coverage, you change the dilution for different areas. You can do 50% dilution where you want the most coverage and 100% where you want less.
A: Hi Mary. It is possible but not very practical. Reach out to our team to make sure you're using the right paint for the job at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd be happy to help you get the look you want.
A: All our colors are available in 1L sizes for purchase. If you'd like a brochure that includes our color chips, make your request at email@example.com and we will happily send one to you. Once you decide on a color, we always recommend purchasing the 1L for swatching before you order the full amount for your project.
A: Hi Danielle. Classico Limewash is not waterproof and is not recommended for horizontal surfaces as they will wear down faster than vertical ones. Classico Limewash is a slaked lime natural product that is not able to handle foot traffic, nor is it washable. Also, ceramic tile is typically coated and/or sealed to prevent wear & tear. Our limewash can only adhere to porous, absorbent surfaces so if it can't absorb water easily, it can't absorb the paint.
A: You may find Romabio's website helpful https://romabio.com/color-options/ and https://romabio.com/choose-limewash-paint-color-home/ Before I limewashed the brick accents on our home, I bought some smaller jars to sample. I did the sampling in an out of the way spot, took photos that showed some materials already on our house, then washed the limewash off amost immediately. I found Riposo Beige to be off-white/ivory. It looked very close to Tropea Beige, which was also off-white/ivory. Toscano Beige which was even a darker ivory shade than both of them, (and it's what we chose that as went with our house's existing paint & roof colors best.) Avorio White, which their website considers a neutral white, was the whitest of all that I sampled. It didn't coordinate with the browns & tans on our home's exterior as well as the other three, (but before I tested the samples it's the one I was leaning toward using.) Anyway, it's been about a year since we limewashed our bricks, and I am very happy with the results! If in doubt, you can try it on a few of your bricks in an out of the way spot first to see if the color/shade coordinates with the rest of your home.
A: Hi Shirley, we understand that choosing the perfect color is important. If you want to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with an inspiration photo and your application surface, we are happy to provide you with some helpful information. If you would like us to send you a brochure with our Whites & Neutrals color collection, please also provide your mailing information! Look forward to hearing from you! - Romabio
A: Hi Jenn. None of our colors are a match for that but Pure White is a cooler white and therefore I would recommend Bianco White as it is our whitest white. Our other whites are a bit warmer and may contrast too much. You can reach out to us for a color swatch card at email@example.com.
