Lime-Prep primer should be applied before applying James Alexander Limewash to drywall, previously painted walls, and surfaces that are not naturally porous for proper adhesion. (not generally required before application to absorbent brick, stone, or plaster). Our zero VOC primer is low odor and allows limewash paint application to many surfaces.

This limewash bonding primer is not a sealing primer. Use an acrylic latex primer prior to this product to prepare new construction or surfaces normally requiring a primer to paint. Simply apply this bonding primer over your sealing primer.

White Base Primer is the best option for most applications.

Clear Base Primer allows the natural color of your base material to show through.

We recommend one coat of this limewash primer and two coats of limewash paint for most applications.

Lime wash primer

I used this primer under your regular paint, and this thing stuck and absorbed the pigment. Creates wonderful pattern, properly absorbs pigment.
