Can I use limewash if I have allergies?
Made from minerals, our limewash is naturally antibacterial, making it great for use by those with allergies.

Limewash is completely non-inflammable, making it a great choice in fire affected areas, and for use in and around chimneys and fireplaces.
Can I paint over Bauwerk Limewash paint?
BAUWERK Paints need no stripping when redecorating an existing coat of BAUWERK Limewash Paint. It is a simple matter of applying 1 or 2 coats as a refresher or to change colours. In fact it is one of the easiest ways to give your house a makeover and with each application, your walls become healthier and more beautiful. It is possible to paint over our Limewash paint with conventional paints – check the paint manufacturer's instructions.
Can I repaint with Bauwerk Limewash?
If you wish to repaint your wall anytime using a different colour, you can apply the new colour directly onto the previous coat, unless you have patched or repaired it (see preparation section). If you are painting a very light colour over a dark colour this may take more coats to cover. You have the choice of painting more coats of limewash to cover the darker paint or use Bauwerk Prep Coat to return to white.
Can I use Limewash on wood?
We don’t recommend BAUWERK Limewash for architectural wood such as doors and trims but it can be used on ply and pine wall panelling.
We don't recommend to use lime wash paint in small confined places where you come into frequent contact with the walls (for instance in a camper van or a confined space in a boat).
There may be instances where a sealant is necessary or you just prefer to seal the finish in a confined space. In such a case please choose a water based sealer that dries completely flat/invisible. We would recommend to do a small test area first, some sealers can make the paint appear a touch darker or lighter than without a sealer.
