How it is made

Historically, traditional natural limewash paint was manufactured using a simple and traditional process. The primary ingredient, quicklime (calcium oxide), was obtained by heating limestone in a kiln. The quicklime was then slaked by adding water, producing a chemical reaction that resulted in calcium hydroxide, also known as slaked lime or lime putty. This lime putty was left to mature for several months. Once matured, the lime putty was mixed with water to achieve the desired consistency for painting. Natural pigments were often added to provide color. These pigments were typically earth-based, such as ochres, siennas, and umbers, which were ground into fine powders and blended into the limewash.

Problems with Traditional Natural Limewash Paint

  • Chalky Finish: Limewash can leave a chalky residue that can rub off on clothes and furniture, which might be undesirable in some settings.
  • Durability: Limewash is not as durable as modern paints. It can be prone to wear even under normal weather conditions. It may require more frequent reapplication.
  • Moisture Sensitivity: Limewash is breathable and allows moisture to pass through, which is good for older buildings. However, it can also be more susceptible to damage in very damp or humid environments.
