We recommend using Earthborn Claypaint on interior lime plaster and lime render because unlike most other paints, it does not reduce the breathability. Conventional vinyl emulsions would partially seal the surface, causing potential problems for the building fabric and the likelihood of the paint ‘blowing off’. Claypaint allows the walls to breathe and offers a viable alternative to lime wash.
A few simple steps should be taken before applying Claypaint to any lime surface:
If over painting interior lime wash, ensure the surface is sound and stable before painting. A diluted coat of Earthborn Wall Glaze may be applied to espcially dusty surfaces to help stabilise prior to painting.
