Lime water is the water used to extinguish quicklime. It is therefore still lime-laden but no longer has the white color that inevitably fades the dye. Its transparency makes it possible to create very bright tones without blocking the support.

Patine : on a limewash or lime based coating, apply with limewash brush your colored lime water either with the same pigment that was used to color your support or with a different pigment to obtain a patina in two shades. Your lime water has been diluted with 1 volume of pigment in 15 to 30 volumes of lime water. The more your pigment is diluted, the more transparency you get with the support.

Finally, as a fixator : after having brushed the "flouring" support, to pass the pure lime water with the brush without pigment to fix the support. Repeat the operation if necessary.
