MUROBOND Pentimento Limewash
MUROBOND Pentimento Limewash is a soft, matt lime paint that develops character over time. It is primarily a natural lime paint but contains a small amount of acrylic to give superior performance on a range of surfaces.
Suitable: for interior and exterior gyprock or masonry walls. Ideal for broad wall areas to soften the mood, or for feature walls in rich colours.
Appearance: is a matt velvet texture with a slightly mottled patina reminiscent of old limewash. It develops more character as it ages, particularly when exposed to exterior conditions. It can enhance both modern and old decors.
Colours: see Pentimento Limewash colours here. Note online colours may vary on different screens, so sample pots can be purchased to test colours in your setting.
VOC: is 13gms/L
Durability: is medium. Being a flat finish it is not as washable as a low sheen paint. It can be overcoated with Murobond Clear Acrylic Sealer in areas that need to be cleaned regularly.
Vapour Permeability: very good vapour permeability
Priming: with Murobond Primer is necessary for all surfaces. Other paints may be sensitive to the alkaline nature of Limewash so a coat of Murobond Primer is a must. Bare gyprock may require two coats of Murobond primer. The primer should be coloured towards the Limewash colour.
Application: is with a large Murobond brush in a random pattern. This creates the tonal movement and quality of the finish. Maintain a wet edge as you are working. Apply in dry conditions above 10 degrees C and below 30 degrees C.
Decorative: yes. Use for feature walls and decorative effect.
Drying: is overnight between coats.
Coverage: is 6 - 8 sq.m/L
Coats: is two
