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 info@romabio.com so they can advise if it will work for your project.

    Q:Would this product be appropriate to just lighten the grout on a brick fireplace? I like my brick and don’t really want to change the color of the brick much, but the grout is WAY to dark.

      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.

        Q:Can this be used on a fireplace? I have a wood burning stove insert. Will that be a problem?

        Answer This Question

        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.

          Q:The tile is a dark tuscany era look, (image attached). If the limewash can be used, would it cause the tile to have a much softer/lighter appearance with very little original color to show through? I’d like the variation of the color to give some natural and not painted appearance a light beige, but no yellow/gold/brown. I’m assuming if it would work it would take several coats on the really dark tiles, is it possible for some tiles individually receive more coats than others without causing an uneven overall texture to the finish? Would brush strokes show or is there a method of application that would affect the smoothness? The uneven surface of the tiles is expected, but gritty or obvious brush strokes would not give a natural appearance which is the desired effect.

          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.

                Q:Can I use this on ceramic tile? Is this limewash water proof?
                by|Feb 20, 2023
                1 Answer
                Answer This Question

                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.

                  Q:Which color gives more of an Off White look? I do not want bricks to look too

                  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.

                      Answer This Question

                      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 info@romabio.com.
