Lime Wash

Lime Wash

ROCKCOTE Lime Wash provides a breathable decorative finish that penetrates into the underlying substrate, delivering a long-lasting, robust coating.

Lime Wash has been used for centuries on the exterior and interior of all types of buildings. Recreate the aged patina look reminiscent of a traditional Greek seaside building; or the heritage character of a Sydney terrace home. It is perfect for heritage projects, refurbishments or commercial developments, particularly where Council requires new construction to maintain a heritage aesthetic. Additionally, lime wash can be an effective and innovative method to finish more modern surfaces such as a kitchen, courtyard or outdoor living area.

ROCKCOTE Lime Wash is suitable for use over Lime Plaster Basecote or Earthen Render as well as timber and most other substrates. 

A versatile product, different looks can be achieved by a skilled artisan including cross-hatching, a scalloped shell look, burnishing or a standard rolled finish.

Lime Wash is uniquely beautiful, incredibly bright and gives off such a depth of colour that it appears to shine.
