Warning: If you use Classic lime on brick painted with a masonry primer, you will not get a scrubbing effect. It can only be a solid, opaque layer.
You can wash the brick with latex paint or lime wax (a mixture of lime, dye and water). Both give the charming used look of old European bricks. They penetrate your brick and create an instant patina.
Lime wash: No! Lime wash should not be considered for use on previously painted surfaces or on wood, metal or plastic. A garden wall, on the other hand, can be ■■■■■■ with a lime layer and is often best used on a wall without a moisture resistant layer.
While painting on brick with 100% latex paint gives the brick a solid, dull color, lime softens the natural color of the brick with a translucent surface. The technique preserves the natural and random variations of the stones, depending on the amount of paint applied and how each stone collects it.
White Wash uses paint and water to create a uniformly lit brick finish. Lime wash uses slaked lime and water to create a rougher, chalky look and was used in Europe for centuries before painting was invented. So I wash it all, lime laundry, you have my heart.

The paint is often peeling or peeling and only lasts a few years before the bricks need to be repainted. Staining is a longer solution to change the color of the stones.
Moisten the first wall to be painted with a garden hose nozzle (wet, but not dripping). Water allows Limewash Classico paint to slowly penetrate bricks or stones without drying too quickly, which improves penetration and durability.
Think carefully before painting indoor or outdoor tiles. Bricks that tile, deteriorate, mold or are generally bad are always bad candidates for painting. The paint blocks the natural pores on the surface of the brick, which over time can aggravate existing problems.
