Lime paint is not only anti-allergic and antibacterial. It delivers stunning effects on walls and furniture . It is fun to paint with Venice. Long live creativity.
Lime paint goes back ages. It was Michelangelo who painted the impressive ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. It took him 4 years to complete (1508-1512), laying on his back and painting with lime paint (on wet lime plaster). Lime paint cures by reacting with CO2 in the air. This process is called carbonation, during this process the lime paint hardens, develops its final colour and bonds to the substrate. In fact, Michelangelo was "baking" paint.
CO2 absorption helps to improve interior air quality, and that makes lime paint certainly one of the most sustainable paints you will ever find.
Moreover, lime paint delivers stunning textures. Full of depth and nuances in colour. Painting with Venice lime paint is fun and very rewarding. To allow the carbonation process to complete successfully, Venice lime paint needs a mineral surface. In case of doubt, apply a coat of Vintage chalk paint before painting with Venice. This will create a surface that Venice lime paint loves.
