Pit Lime Paint - 1 gallon
Lime Paint leverages the natural multiple personalities of limestone. With a proprietary manufacturing process, Unearthed Lime Paint has excellent adhesion and binding compared to other lime paints, essentially becoming a layer of limestone as it hardens on the painted surface. As with all Unearthed products, Lime Paint is made with pure, non-toxic ingredients and is 100% VOC free.
Unearthed Lime Paint embraces limestone's versatility with finishes that can work together or stand alone. Lime Paint alone has high light reflecting power, while tinted Lime Paint typically has slight variations in color following the direction of application, creating a slightly cloudy look. Lime Paint's extensive range of finishes and earth and mineral pigment colors available makes it easy to create a look for virtually every taste and décor. Lime Paint is also highly alkaline and therefore naturally resistant to fungus and mold growth, making it ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, and children's rooms. In fact, lime paint is recommended by doctors in Germany for use in nurseries and children's rooms because of its antibacterial qualities. Unearthed Lime Paint received the highest rating of "very good" by the German environmental magazine, Oko Test, which was based on its performance and sustainability (under the name Kreidezeit).

*Please note that there may be some color inaccuracies due to variations in computer screens. The best way to get an accurate color representation is to buy a sample size of the actual paint color you are considering. You can also contact us for free printed color palettes and hand-painted swatches.
Typical coverage of one gallon is 200 square feet, per coat. (Coverage will vary depending on surface.) Best results are generally achieved with two coats.
How to Use:
Ships as a white liquid in 1 gallon buckets. Simply stir slightly before application, as minor separation is natural. If you want tinted paint, just mix in the pre-measured powdered pigment packet. Dissolve the pigments in water and then stir into the paint using a paint stirrer attachment for an electric drill or a handheld kitchen mixer. Lime paint can be brushed on or sprayed on if applicator is previously experienced with spraying paint. We do not recommend applying lime paint with a roller. In most cases, you will want to dilute with approximately 5-10% water, which will extend coverage and provide a smoother finish.

We recommend priming highly absorbent surfaces (such as new drywall) and surfaces with varying levels of absorbency with Vega Primer.
