Here's a step-by-step guide on how to mix Asvesti limewash paint for your next painting project.


  1. Hydrated Lime: This is the key ingredient. You can find it at most hardware or home improvement stores. Make sure it’s calcium hydroxide and not quicklime.
  2. Water: Limewash paint is essentially just lime and water, so you’ll need plenty of water to create the right consistency.
  3. Pigment (optional): While traditional limewash is white, you can add pigment to create different colors.


  1. Bucket: Large enough to hold the amount of limewash paint you want to make.
  2. Stirring Stick: To mix the ingredients thoroughly.
  3. Measuring Cup: For accurate measurements.

How to mix Asvesti Limewash Paint

  1. Measure the Lime: For a standard mix, start with one part hydrated lime to three parts water. For example, if you're using 1 cup of lime, you'll need 3 cups of water.
  2. Mix the Lime and Water: Pour the hydrated lime into your bucket, then add the water gradually, stirring continuously to prevent clumps.
  3. Adjust the Consistency: The ideal consistency is similar to that of whole milk. If your limewash is too thick, add more water; if it's too thin, add more lime.
  4. Add Pigment (Optional): If you want colored limewash, now is the time to add pigment. Start with a small amount, as a little goes a long way. Mix thoroughly until the desired color is achieved.
  5. Let it Sit: Once mixed, let the limewash sit for about 24 hours. This allows the lime to fully dissolve and the mixture to thicken slightly.
  6. Stir Again: Before using the limewash, give it another good stir to ensure the consistency is uniform.


  • Test Before Applying: Before applying the limewash to your entire surface, test it on a small area to make sure you're happy with the color and finish.
  • Apply Thin Coats: Limewash should be applied in thin coats for the best results. Multiple thin coats will give you better coverage and a more even finish.
  • Protect Yourself: Wear gloves and safety goggles when mixing and applying limewash, as it can irritate the skin and eyes.

By following these simple steps, you can mix your own limewash paint and give your walls, ceilings, or exterior surfaces a beautiful, breathable finish that will stand the test of time. Visit Avesti to learn more.
