Enjoy a satisfying sensory experience without traveling abroad! Some people book European vacations to experience Old World beauty up close. Other people visit museums to surround themselves with paintings by the Old Masters. We are captivated by the play of texture, color, and light in those masterpieces.

Lime wash is a timeless technique favored by designers. Harper’s Bazaar describes lime wash as “the cool paint technique you’ve been seeing all over Instagram.” Commercial and residential designers appreciate its naturalistic, eco-friendly finish. Lime wash treatments balance the use of cold, sleek, shiny materials like brass, chrome, or lacquer.

Lime wash dates back to the Roman Empire. The Romans applied lime wash to plaster and brick exteriors as well as to the trunks of tropical trees. The Romans prized lime wash for its breathable, anti-fungal finish. To make lime wash, limestone is crushed, burned, and mixed with water to make a lime putty. The lime putty is then colored with natural pigments.

Use ROMABIO Classico Limewash to achieve a beautiful whitewash effect. ROMABIO Classico Limewash is an authentic slaked lime use in Europe for centuries. Celebrate the texture of your brick or stone while also brightening the look of the surface.

Enjoy easy application and low maintenance. Mix ROMABIO Classico Limewash with water and dilute 50-70% to achieve the desired consistency. Apply this organic product using a single coat process with a ROMABIO Masonry brush or a PRO sprayer.

ROMABIO Classico Limewash calcifies to the brick creating a finish that continues to patina over time. The Italian mineral paint is mold-resistant with high UV and fade resistance. The permeable, breathable finish lasts for decades.

ROMABIO Classico Limewash is a “no stress, no commitment” purchase. Simply paint on and then wipe or wash the product off immediately after application. According to the manufacturer, you can remove an entire exterior application up to 2 days following the initial application. Please note that this requires use of a high force pressure washer.

ROMABIO also offers a series of high-performing masonry paint. ROMABIO Masonry Flat is an environmentally-friendly product offering extreme durability on interior and exterior surfaces. Available in more than a dozen timeless colors, ROMABIO Masonry Flat is derived from sustainable minerals.

Use ROMABIO Masonry Paints and breathe easy! These are not acrylic or latex products. ROMABIO Masonry Paints create a natural, breathable, hypoallergenic coating. They do not trigger asthma or other forms of respiratory irritation.

Plan ahead for proper application. Masonry surfaces must be damp for proper absorption and adherence. Pressure wash the surface and paint it on the same day. For unpainted bring and stone masonry, the manufacturer recommends two coats of Masonry paint with no primer. For glossy brick, cement siding, or stucco, we advise priming first with BioGrip Micro Primer. When properly applied as a two-coat system, the manufacturer guarantees a 20-year finish with no peeling or chipping.
