Instructions to apply Limewash Paint

Whether you're renovating an old home or adding character to a new space, applying limewash paint is a simple and rewarding process. Here's a guide to help you properly apply limewash paint for your next renovation project, along with some important instructions to ensure the best results.


Make sure the surface you're painting is clean, dry, and free from any loose or flaking material.

If the surface has been previously painted, you may need to remove the old paint before applying limewash.

Wear gloves and safety goggles to protect your skin and eyes from the lime in the paint.

Mixing the Limewash Paint

Ingredients include hydrated lime and water. Start with one part hydrated lime and three parts water. Adjust the ratio as needed to achieve the desired consistency. Pour the hydrated lime into a bucket. Gradually add water, stirring continuously to prevent lumps from forming. The ideal consistency is similar to that of whole milk.


Use a brush, roller, or sprayer to apply the limewash paint. A brush will give you more control and help you achieve a textured finish. Apply the limewash paint in thin, even coats. Work in small sections, starting from the top and working your way down.

For a more textured finish, use a cross-hatch or criss-cross motion with the brush. And for best results, apply multiple thin coats of limewash paint. Allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next one.
