  • Paint vs. Limewash

    All,

    I just completed my first oven but I'm struggling trying to find a paint and I'm concern about possible fumes...

    Can I simply limewash the dome?
    Any other suggestions for paint or stain in the US?

    Thanks for any replies.

    Limewash should work fine. Do 1 part white portland to 2 parts lime and thin to the consistency you want (thin enough not to be over an 1/8" thick tops).

      Ordinary acrylic outdoor paint works well.
      Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

        Thanks for the responses...as soon as I find the lime I might go with that, I haven't had any luck with the local stores so far

          I used exterior acrylic masonry paint the colors are limited because of the base they use so I put an additional coat of ordinary exterior acrylic paint in a color that I liked.
