Limewash Paint Wood And Brick
Lime wash is the perfect finish for brick. Unlike traditional paint that leaves a topical plastic finish on top of brick, lime wash absorbs into the brick leaving a natural contour. Because our lime wash paint does not contain any synthetic fillers or additive our lime wash does not fade, peel or crack.
