PLEASE NOTE:  We recommend using a primer before applying Novita to unpainted drywall to make sure the joints are properly covered and do not "show" through. It also improves adherence for increased longevity. Apply one coat of Base Plus and only one coat of Novita (depending on the colour).  For more information see our Surface Preparation and Application Guide under TIPS or scroll for TIPS below.

TIPS:

NOVITA FOR DRYWALL, PLASTER, AND PREVIOUSLY PAINTED WALLS

Apply a coat of Color Rare Base Plus primer first.

NOVITA FOR BRICK & STONE WALLS, FIREPLACES & EXTERIOR FACADES

If the bricks/stones are previously painted/treated (with a product other than lime), we recommend using our Base Plus primer before applying Novita. If untreated/unpainted, Novita can be applied directly. Both products are suitable for exterior/interior brick/stone.

Novita can be wiped/brushed or washed off with water (or a vinegar & water solution) immediately after application. With the use of a pressure washer, the entire application can be removed up to 2 days following the initial application.

If you wish to expose some of the brick or stone, start wiping/washing off some of the limewash when it is still wet, approximately 30 minutes after application, depending on climatic conditions. Start removing earlier if exposed to sun and high temperatures.

As the paint will not appear fully opaque initially, it is important to wait for the paint to be fully dry before assessing its final colour and opacity. Unlike paints, limewash penetrates the surface and the colour & opacity can be built up by applying successive coats. Limewash creates a very durable finish that will not peel or chip off over time. 

As long as the paint is applied during proper weather - 3 days without rain, a minimum 1 week before or after the last frost and appropriate temperatures for application (between 7°C and 27°C (45°F and 80°F)) -  the limewash paint will last approximately five years. After five years, the color remains but may begin to patina from climatic conditions which yield a beautiful weathered finish that can last decades.
