The Traditional Paint Company have been producing limewash for over 30 years to traditional recipes that date back many hundreds of years. The tradition limewash contains organic ingredients such as pigments and slaked lime produced from crushed limestone that has been burnt in kilns (unlike many companies that use hydrated lime) before being slaked and mixed with water to produce a lime putty. Used on historic and listed buildings that need to breath limewash has proved to be ideal as it offer around 96% breathability almost 5 times more permeable that emulsion paint) allowing moisture to escape to the atmosphere rather than being trapped in the wall creating damp in the building. At the Traditional Paint Company all the limewash is blended by hand and thousands of colours available are produced by eye.
