Choose a color from our color palette of curated whites, beiges, and a gray that will give you the antique patina you want. Or, you can choose from the White or Color Oxide sections in the ROMABIO color deck and we can color match other brand palettes. Antique limewash off effect is best achieved using natural, lighter colors.
Painting brick is usually a permanent process. Even for our other masonry paints, once you put it on the brick, it is almost impossible to take off. But not for Classico Limewash! Since it is formulated to be washed off, it can easily be removed or changed within 5 days after the initial application.
Test a sample on your home first to see if you like it. If you are not happy with the look, take it off with a garden hose on the first day before it starts to cure, but after that, you might need household vinegar and the pressure washer. Once the lime starts to calcify and harden, it is much more difficult to remove and eventually it will fully calcify, and it will not be removable.
*Based on purchase of 4 gal. (15L) bucket after dilution of 50% (but can be diluted up to 100%) for 6 gal. @ $267.97.
Since Classico Limewash is formulated to be washed off, it has to have a certain amount of slaked-lime in the product, but not too much so it can be antiqued properly. However, once slaked-lime calcifies, it is one of the most durable, and long lasting paint technologies in the world.
It has been used throughout Europe for centuries for this reason, and it will endure over time, but it will also change slightly with the surface depending on the weather conditions and time. Over 25-50 years, you will begin to notice its’ natural aging qualities and continue to get the weathered, beautiful patina look.
“I have used your product on my living room fireplace and absolutely LOVE it! I was nervous, but I found it to be extremely easy to work with. I achieved the result I was looking for and can’t wait to use it on all my internal brick surfaces…..den fireplace wall, sunroom and bonus room!
I’m so glad I did the research and found ROMABIO instead of using a regular paint/water mixture. I don’t think I would have had the same outcome.”

“I only used one of the liters of the BioCalce Classico Limewash for my four sided brick fireplace. It was an easy product to use with no fear of making mistakes, as you could simply wash away any unwanted paint. I love the end results!”
