Painting fresh lime plaster

Hi, I have recently replastered my kitchen walls in natural hydraulic lime to achieve better breathability, and I now want to move on and paint the walls. I have read that I need to leave the walls for up to 3-4months to make sure they are fully cured!? But is there any way I can paint them sooner? What would the knock on effect be? And which breathable paint would u recommend? Thanks
David

    Hi David

    In terms of suitable paints we would recommend using the Beeck Mineral Paints in a kitchen as they offer the highest durability, the Beeck Sensil would be best suited as it has the highest durability and scrub resistance of any of our paints.

    Drying times can differ significantly and it is also dependant on what type of lime you have used. We would advise leaving the plaster as long as possible to ensure it can cure sufficiently, but in reality you should be able to paint after 4 to 6 weeks.

    If you have any questions or would like to know more about our paints please give us a call on 01208 79779.

    Kind Regards

      Hi Mark

      We stock a wide range of internal paints and any of these would be suitable - http://cornishlime.co.uk/products/paints/internal-wall

      Of our range, we would recommend the Beeck Mineral Paint systems as these offer the highest durability and vapour permeability, of the Beeck range we would usually recommend Beeck Maxil as our go to internal paints for most rooms and if you are looking to paint areas where there will be higher traffic or wear (kitchens, bathrooms etc.) we would recommend Beeck Sensil.

      If you have any questions please contact us.

      Kind Regards

      Adam
