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. 1L size can be purchased to test colours in your setting. (smaller sample pots are not accurate in this product )
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
