The Traditional Paint company brings you a high quality, decorative, Interior Limewash Paint, specially developed for use on interior surfaces like walls and ceilings. Available in a range of different colours, this Limewash paint is an increasingly popular product that can be used on most hard surfaces found internally, offering a finish similar to that of a washed-out emulsion.
You can apply Internal Limewash to a number of internal surfaces. This includes lime render, lime plaster, concrete and Lavaplast walls. You can also apply this paint to walls and ceilings where you require a non-blistering finish. Interior Limewash is highly water permeable and because of this will not flake, peel or blister, however, due to being non-elastomeric will sometimes crack, which is ideal for use in old buildings for an ancient, old-fashioned finish. However, do not apply Limewash to surfaces that have a previous coat of emulsion or gloss. Remove these coatings first prior to the application of Limewash.
Quite often in older buildings, surfaces can become particularly dusty. This makes the coating prone to a build-up that looks unsightly, as well as being very unhygienic. Surfaces coated with Internal Limewash are extremely stable and work to resist dust build-up to keep the surfaces clean and fresh. This product offers a degree of flexibility but will not stretch when walls or ceilings move. This prevents small cracks appearing. However, some users find this property quite appealing as it can give a vintage look without loosing out on protection.
Interior Limewash: Old Fashioned Paint Without The Tallow
A lot of Limewash products are made using a substance called tallow. Tallow is an animal fat that aids adherence in the application/drying process. Our Internal Limewash has a tallow free formulation. Instead, it incorporates PVA glue. Products made with tallow can often be very smelly and sometimes brush off on clothes. This makes it less popular for use in internal settings. The Traditional Paint Company have produced our Internal Limewash purposely without the use of tallow. This ensures it doesn’t give out an excessive odour and allows for a comfortable application process.
