Meoded’s Lime Wash Base Coat is a premium-quality, water-based, 100% acrylic primer formulated to be used as a base coat for Meoded Lime Wash. This primer serves as the base coat for both interior and exterior Lime Wash applications. The easy-to-use formula is created to properly absorb Meoded’s Lime Wash to help achieve the right finish for your project. For best results, two coats are recommended.
- All surfaces must be clean and free from wax, grease, oil, dirt, chalk, dust, mildew, etc., and not have any loose or peeling paint.
- Interior New Surfaces: Prime the substrate first with a PVA primer and let it fully dry.
- Interior and Exterior Existing Surfaces: Any glossy surfaces must be lightly sanded, dusted, then primed with a multi-purpose primer and let fully dry. Next, apply one coat of Lime Wash Base Coat, and let it dry for at least 5-8 hours. Preparation of flat, non-glossy surfaces requires only the application of Lime Wash Base Coat.
The base coat can be brushed, rolled, or spray applied. Apply only when the surface and air temperatures are between 50 F and 95 F. Do not apply under high humidity or if rain is expected within 24 hours. Use a water-based universal primer first when going over oil-based paint.
Meoded’s Lime Wash Base Coat covers between 200-350 square feet per gallon depending on surface texture and porosity.
