Coverage for both spray and brushing applications will be approx 150 – 200 square feet per gallon. Number of coats needed will depend on the surface, however at least three coats is typical. Limewash is the consistency of milk because if it is any thicker, it will crack and craze. Several coats will be needed if you’re looking for complete coverage. Adding Pigment will improve it’s hide-ability. We recommend using this Beater Attachment to thoroughly mix the limewash throughout application.
*Proper surface prep is key!* We recommend completely removing any old paint prior to limewashing. The best paint strippers we’ve found for historic homes that is safe to use with lime mortar is sold by Cathedral Stone Products. We recommend not using any paint strippers with acid due to the chemical reaction that occurs in homes built with lime mortar. Acid, when it comes in contact with lime, makes salt. Salt is an enemy to any masonry structure!
