  • Hi, What is the dilution ratio for white washing over American Clay walls? In other words, how far does 10lbs get you? The room is 10x16x 8ft high. thank you for your help, Karin

    1. Details of application process are below. This is a very thin dilution of lime to water, roughly 1:10 ratio. – Lime putty lime wash – 2 coats – because lime putty has been slaked for much longer it's a much finer solution, so penetrates further than the hotlime mix.

    2. Spray with water before applying the limewash so that the surface is damp. Ordinary limewash covers about 3 – 4 m² per litre; 150-200 ft² per gallon. Limewash will keep indefinitely if frost free and covered with water.
