Bauwerk brush – medium brush (4×14 cm)


Use this brush for all medium to large projects with a smooth to light textured surface. Bauwerk Brushes are made from natural fibres specially selected for lime paint application. Their unique bristle structure retains the correct amount of paint and releases it evenly across the surface during painting.

Bauwerk Lime Paint is perfect for all masonry surfaces such as render, cement and bricks. It works best when it’s absorbed into the wall leaving a breathable surface that is protected by the natural properties of the paint. The paint can also be used if your wall is already painted or is made of gyprock or plaster (use our undercoat/sealer to hide any imperfections, then paint the way you like it best).

You might need more or less, depending your wall structure and on your desired outcome.

Step 1 Wipe down walls to clear any dust or dirt.
Step 2 Apply the Bauwerk prep-coat . Do not use any other prep-coat, as this is specifically formulated for proper adhesion and setting of the lime paint*
Step 3 Once your prep-coat has set, apply your Bauwerk Colour with a Bauwerk lime paint brush, developed specifically for proper application **
Step 4 Do not cut in the lime paint – always work with a wet edge. The paint should be applied in a loose criss-cross style for a “cloud-like” appearance.
Step 5 The paint will appear darker when wet. Do not overcompensate by adding more paint. Allow wall to dry fully (min. 2 hours) before adding another coat.
Step 6 The paint cures by taking carbon dioxide from the air. Millions of micro-crystals are formed when curing occurs, creating a unique luminosity and depth of colour.

If your walls are previously colored or are darker than the lime paint colour you will be applying, we recommend priming with a generic primer first.
** Lime paint has a much different consistency than that of other paints, which is why a brush designed for lime paint is important for proper
application. Using this brush will decrease the loose fibres left in the paint and avoid stroke lines in the final finish.
