Antica Calce is an eco-friendly mineral paint for interiors and exteriors (also called whitewash or lime paint) featuring a high level of breathability with anti-mould and anti-algae characteristics. This product is an improved, natural variety of the age-old finish, with an extensive colour range and various certificates, from a responsible source.

This lime paint is ideal for restorations, listed building, heritage painting and properties or where a natural, soft finish with slightly reflective or chalky look was specified.

Various shades and decorative effects can be created using a sponge or roller, once the top coat has been applied. Please be aware that this is a traditional lime-based paint that should generally be used on natural substrates like lime and clay and experience is needed to handle it.


Impera Italia’s Advice™

When Antica Calce is initially applied it is quite transparent, but -when applied properly- as curing progresses the opacity will increase.



Lime washes have a unique surface sheen due to the double refraction of calcite crystals.
