Ecologic™ Colorwash Stain – (a translucent Potassium Silicate Masonry Stain):
Colorwash Stain is a translucent exterior potassium silicate stain that allows the masonry texture to come through the finish. Colorwash Stain is mildew resistant, water repellent, highly durable, and breathable.
Colorwash Stain is 96% mineral-sourced in a water-base. It is odorless within hours (zero VOCs) and displays all the properties of natural stone (i.e, it is water-vapor permeable.) It does not blister or peel, is water-repellent, and has a life expectancy of 20 plus years.
Mineral paints and masonry stains chemically bond to all forms of masonry substrates such as brick, stone, mortar, stucco, and cement. Unlike latex paints, they are non-film-forming which creates a permanent bond that works in harmony with the masonry.

We approached the Lime Works staff about creating a scrubbed-worn white wash effect on the brick walls of our 1764 Portridge Plantation basement kitchen. Starting with a photo we sent of the Bacon Castle kitchen in Virginia, they custom blended a rather diaphanous looking white stain which we used as an undercoat. Over this, we used the pure white lime paint leaving some areas partially covered. We are very satisfied with the results. The Lime Works products are a joy to use because of their non toxicity and ease of application. We also noticed how luminescent the walls look, giving us a wonderfully bright, light filled room which previously had been so depressingly dark. We plan to continue using Lime Works products in other areas of our historic home.
