Jh Lime Wall Paint Is A Stan Ecomm Jhwallpaint.com

Best Lime Texture Paint

JH Lime Wall Paint stands out for its generous texture and varied limestone appearance. Its natural anti-mold, anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties result in a velvety, matte suede.

JH’s secret is in the “sauce” — mature pit lime aged for more than three years. You apply directly to porous or previously painted surfaces, though you’ll need their Mineral Prime for drywall. Here’s everything you need to know about drywall texture types.

Best Washable Texture Paint

JH Wall Paint makes our list for the second time. It recently released its mineral-based Velvet Wall Paint with a sophisticated, velvety texture that’s scrubbable. It can go directly over previously painted surfaces or primed drywall. And because it’s durable, no sealer is necessary.

The manufacturer suggests rolling or spraying on one or two coats to achieve a luminescent mineral finish, then brushing on the third coat for the “mossy” feel you’re looking for.
