Lime Wall Paint leaves a velvety suede like finish. It cures over time and can be touched up easily with leftover paint. We recommend to leave it natural and not seal it unless you need to have a washable surface or prefer a protective durable sealed finish. If you choose to seal the finish it will darken slightly. Apply one coat of our protective Matte Wall Sealer after 7 days of the final coat of Lime Wall Paint and Mineral Wall Stain. This will allow the paint to cure and create the beautiful dimension and effects.
Matte Wall Sealer is a 100% acrylic clear finish that is non-yellowing and provides a protective topcoat with excellent clarity and extremely low sheen. It is water based and resists water, abrasion, household grime, stains and is easy to apply by brush or roller. Provides extra durability to sensitive coatings in areas that will receive added traffic or moisture such as bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, etc.

SURFACE PREPARATION: Surface must be sound, dry, free from any dirt, grease, loose particles and contamination that will resist penetration and adhesion.
APPLICATION: Gently stir by hand before use. Do not use a drill/paddle and do not “whip” air into Matte Flat Sealer. It is important to stir to a homogenous mixture and incorporate all of the fillers at the bottom of the can before use. When applying over porous plaster, stone or wood, thin with up to 10% with water prior to use. For other painted surfaces use as supplied. Provide appropriate protection for surfaces which are not to be coated (e.g. glass, natural stone, ceramics etc.).
Apply with quality bristle brushes and rollers that are suitable for water based, clear finishes. Apply in a uniform and thin layer to completely cover the surface. Avoid runs, sags and drips by applying multiple thin layers instead of a heavy layer. Recoat time is 1—2 hours depending on temperature and humidity. Repeat applying layers until the surface is well sealed. Depending on porosity, this may take several layers.
