Umber is a natural brown or reddish-brown earth pigment, darker than the other similar earth pigments, ochre and sienna, burnt umber is produced by heating naturally occuring raw umber.

Environmental Considerations

Environmentally friendly product made with natural sustainable ingredients. It contains no VOCs, no petrochemical-based ingredients, and no lead. Water-based. All Rose of Jericho paints comply with the latest environmental legislation.

Usage/Purpose

To be used for the decoration of ceilings and walls in low traffic or low usage areas, and particularly appropriate for the decoration of fine decorative plasterwork. For interior use only. Porous surfaces should be primed with Claircolle (RJ 4.05). Soft Distemper applied to appropriate surfaces will not readily rub off on clothes. It is not as wipeable as Casein Distemper (RJ 4.02), Oil Bound Distemper distemper (RJ 4.03) or Vinyl Matt Emulsion. Distempers should not be over painted with emulsion or other modern paint types.

Coverage

c.10 m2/ litre/coat on smooth surface of average porosity.

Shelf Life

Limited. Unopened cans have a 12 week shelf life when stored in a cool environment. Protect from frost. Best used within 4 weeks of purchase.

Finish

Matt with subtle variations of colour and tone.

Observations

Touch dry in 4 hours in good drying conditions, Allow 12 hours between coats.

Preparation

Ensure Soft Distemper is within shelf life period. All surfaces should be sound, dry, and free from dirt, oil, grease or other contamination. Previously distempered surfaces should be wiped or washed free of all powdery surface material. Porous surfaces should be primed with one coat of Claircolle. New lime plaster should be allowed to carbonate and dry for at least four weeks prior to application. Any fungus or mould must be treated with a fungicide and making good and filling should be carried out with material appropriate to the substrate. Soft Distemper can be applied to prepare previously emulsion painted surfaces in normal domestic environments. It is not recommended that distemper be applied to emulsion and other modern paint types in poorly heated and poorly ventilated buildings including churches. Seek Technical Advice. Sample trials should be carried out well in advance to ensure that the surface is suitable for application.

Application

Two coats normally recommended. Apply by brush. Cannot be spray or roller applied. Soft Distemper is a thick gel that brushes out readily, and thinning should not be necessary for primed or previously painted surfaces. Soft Distemper is temperature sensitive and will thicken in cold conditions. It can be returned to the correct consistency by placing in a warm room or standing the can in a bucket of hot water. Stirring with a mechanical whisk can be advantageous for application to certain surfaces, as can light mist spraying of the surface prior to application. Only if absolutely necessary dilute by no more than 10% water and whisk thoroughly. Brushes and equipment should be cleaned with warm, soapy water immediately after use.

Environmental Considerations

Environmentally friendly products made with natural sustainable ingredients. They contain no VOCs, no petrochemical-based ingredients, and no lead. Water-based. All Rose of Jericho paints comply with the latest environmental legislation.

Usage/Purpose

Pure Limewash is used for the decoration of porous internal surfaces. It should not be used on cement render, gypsum plaster, timber, or surfaces painted with anything other than limewash.

Coverage

Approx. 5m2/litre/coat depending upon texture and porosity of surface.

Shelf Life

Pure Limewash has unlimited shelf life kept in sealed containers. Protect from heat and frost.

Finish

Matt surface coating. Colours are darker in tone when wet.

Observations

Sample trials should always be carried out to assess compatibility with substrate. Pure Limewash should be protected from drying too quickly, and from frost before carbonation. It may brush off on clothes. For internal use only – rarely used externally. Casein Bound Limewash (RJ3.02) adheres better to less porous surfaces and is less likely to brush off on clothes, and is therefore often used internally. Coloured limewashes are made using natural earth pigments. Variations due to these pigments and differing porosity of surfaces are inevitable. Much of the charm of a traditional finish is its lack of uniformity with subtle variations of colour and tone.

Preparation

Pure Limewash requires a surface which is firm, clean, and porous. It can be applied to new lime putty plaster before it has fully dried and carbonated as the permeable nature of a limewash permits carbonation of the plaster beneath to continue. Pure Limewash can be applied to previously limewash painted surfaces, but cannot be applied to other paint types. Previously limewashed surfaces should be thoroughly brushed and washed with a wet sponge to remove dust, dirt and all loose chalky material that is removed readily. Any algae or mould must be treated with an algaecide or fungicide and thoroughly washed off with clean water. Do not use proprietary fungicides containing water repellents. Make good and fill with a compatible filler. Pure Limewash must be applied to damp surfaces. Lime plaster, porous stone and brick must be thoroughly moistened with a mist spray prior to application.

Application

Pure Limewash must be thoroughly mixed, preferably with a mechanical whisk to ensure even distribution of pigments and ingredients immediately before and during use. Limewashing can be messy, and floors etc. should be protected. Protective clothing and goggles must be worn and great care taken especially when limewashing ceilings. Surfaces must be damp. Porous pre-wetted surfaces will need mist-spraying during application to ensure that the limewash does not dry too quickly. Apply the limewash to the damp surface using a brush, not a roller, working it into any cracks. It is applied in thin coats; limewash appears transparent on application and care must be taken to avoid thick build-up which will craze on drying out and may obscure detail. Normally, three coats are required, occasionally more. Each coat must be protected from drying too quickly by regular mist-spraying, and a reasonable time (normally at least 24 hours) allowed between coats. It is important to re-moisten the previous coat with a fine mist spray prior to the application of the next coat.

Availability

5 litre cans and 15 litre tubs. Mixed to order and normally supplied within 48 hours.

Environmental Considerations

Limewashes are made with natural sustainable ingredients. They contain no VOCs, no petrochemical based ingredients, and no lead. Water-based. All Rose of Jericho paints comply with the latest environmental legislation. This product contains both a fungicide and an algaecide.

Usage/Purpose

Casein Bound Limewash is an exterior grade limewash but is also often used internally due to its superior adhesion properties and as it is less likely to brush off on clothes than Pure Limewash. It can be used on less porous surfaces including hydraulic lime based plasters and renders, although sample trials should always be carried out to assess compatibility with substrate.

Coverage

Approx. 6m2/litre/coat depending on texture and porosity of surface.

Shelf Life

At least 3 months shelf life when kept cool in sealed containers. Casein Limewash must be stored in a cool frost-free environment, away from heat and direct sunlight. Tins and tubs must not be kept in the van in sunny weather and must be moved to a cool or cold environment. Protect from heat and frost.

Finish

Matt surface coating. Colours are darker in tone when wet.

Observations

Casein Bound Limewash is more compatible with open-textured wood or sponge floated plaster and render surfaces than tight smooth steel-trowel polished surfaces. Coloured limewash is made using natural powder pigments. Variations due to these pigments and differing porosity of surfaces are inevitable. Much of the charm of a traditional finish is its lack of uniformity with subtle variations of colour and tone.

Preparation

Casein Bound Limewash requires a surface that is firm, clean, and porous. It can be applied to new lime plaster and render before it has fully dried and carbonated as the permeable nature of a limewash permits carbonation of the plaster beneath to continue. Casein Bound Limewash can be applied to previously limewash painted surfaces, although sample trials should be undertaken. Previously limewashed surfaces should be thoroughly brushed and washed with a wet sponge to remove dust, dirt and all loose chalky material that is removed readily. Any algae or mould must be treated with an algaecide or fungicide and thoroughly washed off with clean water. Do not use proprietary fungicides containing water repellents. Make good and fill with a compatible material. Casein Bound Limewash should be applied to damp surfaces. Lime plaster and render, porous stone and brick must be thoroughly moistened with a mist spray prior to application.

Application

Ensure limewash is within shelf life period. Casein Bound Limewash must be thoroughly mixed, preferably with a mechanical whisk, to ensure even distribution of pigments and ingredients immediately before and during use as it readily settles out. Protective clothing and goggles must be worn and great care taken especially when limewashing ceilings. Surfaces must be damp. Porous pre-wetted surfaces may need additional mist-spraying during application to ensure that the limewash does not dry too quickly. Casein Bound Limewash must not be applied to sunlit surfaces, and application must be delayed until the wall is in the shade. Apply the limewash to the damp surface using a brush, not a roller, working it into any cracks. It is applied in thin coats - limewash appears transparent on application and care must be taken to avoid thick build-up that will craze on drying out and may obscure detail. Normally, 3 coats are required, occasionally more. Each coat must be protected from drying too quickly by regular mist-spraying, and a reasonable time (at least 24 hours, often longer) allowed between coats. It is normal to mist-spray the previous coat prior to the application of the next coat.

Availability

Environmental Considerations

Limewashes are made with natural sustainable ingredients. They contain no VOCs, no petrochemical based ingredients, and no lead. Water-based. All Rose of Jericho paints comply with the latest environmental legislation. This product contains both a fungicide and an algaecide.

Usage/Purpose

Tallow Bound Limewash is an exterior grade limewash used for the decoration of lime renders, porous building materials, and previously tallow-limewashed surfaces in the more exposed locations. Tallow Bound Limewash is normally preferred on less porous surfaces.

Coverage

Approx. 4 –5 m2/litre/coat depending upon texture and porosity of surface.

Shelf Life

The tallow tends to coagulate and Tallow Bound Limewash should be used within one week of manufacture. Tallow Bound Limewash must be stored in a cool frost-free environment, away from heat and direct sunlight. Tins and tubs must not be kept in the van in sunny weather and must be moved to a cool or cold environment.

Finish

Matt surface coating. Colours are darker in tone when wet.

Observations

Less permeable than both Pure Limewash (RJ3.01) and Casein Bound Limewash (RJ3.02). Coarse textured wood or sponge floated surfaces are far preferable to smooth steel-trowel polished surfaces. Sample trials should always be carried out to assess compatibility with substrate. Coloured limewash is made using natural powder pigments. Colour and tone variations due to these pigments and differing porosity of surfaces are inevitable. Much of the charm of a traditional finish is its lack of uniformity with subtle variations of colour and tone.

Preparation

Tallow Bound Limewash requires a surface that is firm, clean, and porous. It can be applied to new lime render before it has carbonated, but Tallow Bound Limewash is less permeable than Pure or Casein Bound Limewash and will slow the rate of carbonation of the render beneath. Tallow Bound Limewash can be applied to previously tallow-limewash painted surfaces, but not to other paint types. Sample trials should be undertaken. Previously limewashed surfaces should be thoroughly brushed and washed with a wet sponge to remove dust, dirt and all loose, chalky material that is removed readily. All mould and algae must be treated with a fungicidal wash that includes an algaecide and thoroughly washed off with clean water. Do not use fungicides containing water repellents. Make good and fill with a compatible material/filler. Tallow Bound Limewash should be applied to damp surfaces. Lime plaster and render, porous stone and brick must be thoroughly moistened with a mist spray prior to application.

Application

Ensure Tallow Bound Limewash has been made within the previous week. Tallow Bound Limewash must be thoroughly mixed, preferably with a mechanical whisk, to ensure even distribution of pigments and ingredients immediately before and during use as it readily settles out. Protective clothing and goggles must be worn and great care taken. Surfaces must be damp. Porous pre-wetted surfaces may need additional mist-spraying during application to ensure that the limewash does not dry too quickly. Apply the limewash to the damp surface using a brush, not a roller, working it into any cracks. It is applied in thin coats - the limewash appears transparent on application and care must be taken to avoid thick build-up which will craze on drying out and may obscure detail. Normally, 3 coats are required, occasionally more. Each coat must be protected from drying too quickly by regular mist-spraying, and a reasonable time (at least 24 hours, often longer) allowed between coats. It is normal to mist-spray the previous coat prior to the application of the next coat. Limewashing can be messy, and full protection must be provided to all vulnerable adjacent surfaces. In particular, any oak or oak flooring must be fully protected, as the alkali lime permanently stains hardwoods. Newly applied exterior limewash must be fully protected from rain, wind, direct sunlight, frost etc until it has cured and carbonated (normally about 4 weeks).
