My first attempt at lime washing was not entirely trouble free - I began by spraying the walls well and mixing a big bucket of uncoloured lime wash 9/1 portions water to lime putty.

The first coat went on well but I made the mistake of using a big lime wash brush and causing a fresh bout of 'tennis elbow'.I bought a smaller brush from the local ferramenta and this was much easier on the arms.

The next coats had pigments added;all powdered earth colours which are first mixed with water.
