Original Lime Wash

Porter's Original Lime Wash is a unique lime-based coating, blended with natural pigments which is designed to create a soft weathered patina reminiscent of the wonderful finishes on the buildings of Tuscany, Portofino and other regions throughout the Mediterranean. Porter's Original Lime Wash uses slaked and aged lime to give this finish its ageless beauty. It is a wonderful material that mellows gradually while it wears away. Lime Wash also has hygienic properties and acts a mild fungicide due to its high pH.
