Our limewashes are handmade to traditional recipes in Dorset using artists quality powder pigments and are characterised by a lack of uniformity with subtle variations of colour and tone.
Pure Limewash is normally reserved for internal use, and Casein and Tallow Bound Limewash are external grades, as the casein and tallow improve rain-shedding. Limewash is applied to porous surfaces including lime plaster and render, limestone and soft brick. All are permeable and suitable for use in traditional buildings.
Our limewashes have been used for the external redecoration of the Queen's Chapel, St James, and for the redecoration of Kew Palace. These iconic buildings were first painted with our limewash in the mid-1990s and again in both 2005 and 2018.
Limewash is available in most of our traditional colour range here.
