Are Earthborn paints breathable?

We offer two fully breathable paint finishes making them perfect for lime plaster and heritage projects.

Earthborn Claypaint is a water based, breathable emulsion suitable for interior walls and ceilings. It has no nasty paint smells and covers exceptionally well. Being totally free from oils and acrylics, it’s especially suitable for lime plaster, older properties and buildings that may have suffered from damp problems, as well as over painting pre-existing paintwork. The high clay content gives Earthborn Claypaint a beautiful creamy consistency making it a joy to use and results in its distinctive totally flat matt finish.

Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint has a breathability level similar to that of limewash, making it ideal for older properties, conservation projects, as well as new and old lime render. It is regularly used on listed buildings and heritage properties. A chemical reaction with the mineral substrate means that when used together, the paint and primer form part of the surface, so it is highly durable and weather resistant. Once fully cured, it won’t flake off and unlike limewash doesn’t need reapplying every few years. Earthborn Silicate Masonry paint system is naturally alkaline so resists algae growth and is non-yellowing, with a classic matt finish.
