The two most common ways our Old Village Paint customers use our whitewash is on their interior walls, and exterior brick. Of course, it could also be used on floors, furniture, terra cotta planters, mirrors, trim, ceilings, exterior walls, craft projects . . . .
Old Village Paint Whitewash is absolutely safe for interior and exterior home use. We use the word “simulated” on our whitewash because our paint doesn’t include some harsh chemicals that were historically a part of whitewash.
To use our whitewash paint simply apply the whitewash as you would any latex paint.
We’ve found the best way to apply this to interior surfaces is to roll on a layer, and then go over it lightly with the brush, to create a slight design on the surface.
On unsealed exterior surfaces, we recommend you use Old Village Exterior Primer (#1236).
On interior surfaces use Old Village Interior Primer (#1234). (Simulated Whitewash may be tinted with universal colorants, but not with other paints)
Our simulated whitewash paint is available in two finishes: gritty and smooth. And this concerns a real TEXTURE difference.
