A pure slaked lime base, lime wash is used in both the restoration of historic buildings and for decorative finishes. The beauty of this product is that it acts more as a stain than a paint, seeping into the substrate upon which it is applied and giving a unique and distinctive finish. Much more organic in nature, the lime washes are offered in a variety of custom hues to create the highest level of artistic finishes. Creating faint textures with different brushing and sponging techniques is a common use of the limewashes. This material is also used extensively in exterior applications for the maintenance of historic structures and the creation of a time worn effect on new designs. The play between this lime plaster and the natural elements is a beautiful occurrence and creates a unique aesthetic on each new individual façade.
