Lime Paint over Brick

This video will demonstrate the beautiful finish you can achieve using lime paint over brick. Lime paint is unique in that it is absorbed into the brick and doesn’t create a film on top of the brick like paint.  It leaves a natural contour of the stone.

Featured Products Used:

We used Pure and Original Fresco in Sea Salt for the fireplace. It is creamy and has amazing quality. There is deep character in lime paint that you cannot get in traditional paint.  We also use Sydney Harbour Paint Company’s Inferno Lime Wash too which has great quality and works beautifully.  Both links to purchase are below.  See which one meets your color preferences and budget.  Both are excellent lime paints.

    I have a gas fireplace with 80’s style brick around it.
    Can I paint the tile?
    Could I use milk paint?

    Thank you for your question Janelle. We recommend using lime paint over brick. It absorbs into the brick with a natural contour. In terms of painting tile, what type of tile is it? Is it natural stone and porous, is it ceramic or porcelain, etc?
