Stoopen & Meeûs: global player in mineral paints and plasters

Stoopen & Meeûs was founded in 1894. For the past 125 years, the company has been producing colours and mineral paints for customers all over the world. About a decade ago, we started studying mineral and decorative paints and plasters. It opened up a whole new world for us! We started developing new products, such as Stuc, Crustal, Roestique,…and lime paint! To this day, we are still developing and producing innovative mineral and decorative products.

Mix & Match: play with colour

Two years ago marked the start of the Mix & Match story. Time to play around with colour! We wanted to find out how many combinations we could create with just five different pigments and two lime bases. And bam … the Home Collection was born. Here we are today, after countless brainstorm sessions, hours of work and tons of inspiration. We are driven by a tremendous desire to inspire people to experiment with paint and colour. A unique concept in an exciting and thriving market.

Why lime paint? Lime paint is environmentally friendly and sustainable!

Lime paint is an environmentally-friendly and sustainable product. It is mould-, moss-, and fire-resistant. Also, it protects your walls from moisture problems and gives them that beautiful, matte finish.

Paint is composed of a binder, a solvent, and a pigment. While in other paints, latex serves as a binder and turpentine as a solvent, lime paint is composed of natural products. The binder in lime paint is – wait for it – lime, straight from nature! The solvent in lime paint is plain water, which you can add yourself. This way we save on transport since we only need to transport the powder. Less transport equals fewer emissions!

Always wear safety glasses when working with lime paint

Just like any other paint, lime paint has its disadvantages. For example, because of lime’s high pH level, you must always put on safety glasses when applying the paint. Avoid all contact with the eyes. Also, it is not easy to remove stains from lime paint. We advise you not to use it in areas with frequent spills, such as bathrooms or kitchens.

In our opinion, these disadvantages do not outweigh the many advantages of lime paint. So let’s get started and transform your room into a unique masterpiece with that beautiful matt look!

How many layers of lime paint should I apply?

The number of layers you apply depends on the type of surface and the desired look. We recommend one or two layers. If you are not completely satisfied with the result, you can always add an extra coat.

How much lime paint do I need?

1 kg of lime paint covers about 8 to 10 m² with a single layer. The exact paint consumption depends on the type of surface and the thickness of the layer.

How long does lime paint need to dry?

Lime paint dries in one to five hours. The exact drying time depends highly on the conditions in which the lime paint was applied. The ideal ambient and surface temperature is between 8°C and 25°C. Immediately after the lime paint is dry, you can paint over it with another layer of lime paint.

Can I reuse my prepared lime paint? For how long can I keep it?

Once prepared, lime paint can become slightly thicker when stored. You can mix and reuse prepared lime paint for at least one month by adding more water and stirring.

Which finish can I use for lime paint?

You can protect lime paint against moisture and stains with a varnish. Please note that every finish directly influences the colour and has to be applied with a paint roller.

What is the shelf life of lime powder?

In a sealed container and dry conditions, you can store lime powder for at least one year.

Can lime paint be used on furniture?

Lime paint is often used to give furniture that authentic look. When doing so, it is vital to check whether the furniture does not contain a protective layer such as wax or oil.

Depending on the desired result, you can add a primer coat. You can dilute the paint before applying or lightly sand it afterward.

Can I paint over wallpaper?

Classic wallpaper is not paintable because the water in the lime paint can dissolve the glue. Non-woven wallpaper can be painted over with lime paint, but you need to use a primer first.

How can I put more nuance in the colour of my lime paint?

There are several ways to do that:

  • Dilute the paint for the second layer.
  • Add a brighter second layer by adding less pigment.
  • Add a few strokes of a different colour in the second layer and spread them out.
Can I use lime paint to cover up stains on the wall?

Even lime paint has its limits. No primer or lime paint can prevent stains like grease, rust, and soot from eventually bleeding through.

What if I get paint on my clothes or on the floor?

It’s easy to remove lime paint from your clothes or floor, but we advise you to do it as soon as possible. Once the paint is dried out, it becomes harder to remove.
