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 prefer a protective durable sealed finish. If you choose to seal the finish it may darken slightly. Apply one coat of our protective Matte Sealer after 7 days of the final coat of Lime Wall Paint and Mineral Stain. This will allow the paint to fully cure and create the beautiful dimension and effects.
Matte 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 roller. Provides extra durability to sensitive coatings in areas that will receive added traffic or moisture such as bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, etc.
Lime Wall Paint is not recommended in showers.

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 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 you can thin with up to 20% with water prior to use. Provide appropriate protection for surfaces which are not to be coated (e.g. glass, natural stone, ceramics etc.).
Apply with a 1/2 inch or 3/8 inch roller in a thin layer keeping a wet edge and using a uniform pattern to completely cover the surface. Seal from corner to corner and do not stop in the middle of an area. Pre wet roller nap cover prior to application. Be sure roller cover is free of lint or any foreign matter that could get into the clear sealer. Avoid runs, sags and drips by applying multiple thin layers instead of a heavy layer. Recoat time is 12 hours depending on temperature and humidity. Repeat applying layers until the surface is well sealed. Depending on porosity, this may take a few layers.
