MINERAL BEAUTY

Nature’s COLOR PALETTE

Mineral pigments color Limestrong finishes beautifully. By blending mineral oxides, umber, ochre and others, we’ve curated fourteen colors that offer a versatile range of tones that are naturally color fast and UV resistant. Each color has a range of seven shades, from barely-tinted to richly-pigmented. Below the color name, the shades are displayed vertically from lightest to darkest (W: off-white, A-F).

Headlining the palette is Calcite, the color of pure unpigmented bright white plaster, named after what it is: the calcite crystals that make up the glowing beauty of mineral lime plaster.

 

*The palette colors are representations only and not actual photographs of plaster. Depending on the screen, color representations may vary.

About

We’ve created a universal tinting system using high quality oxide pigments. Our system uses a total of 8 powder pigments measured by weight in a ratio to the dry white  plaster.  All of our 200 + standard colors are made with either 1 or 2 pigments.    Using pigments on their own or in combination, we can create a  wide array of beautiful colors from off white to rich hues.  Once users learn our simple system, they are limited only by their imagination when creating their own custom colors.

Disclaimer

Colors on mobile devices and computer monitors are not 100% accurate. Limestrong finishes and pigments are composed of natural materials that may have certain inherent characteristics

We use  natural pigments and materials that can vary in strength and hue from batch to batch.

Although color variations are closely monitored it is a good idea to buy all pigment and plaster for a project from the same lot.

We encourage you or your applicator to make sample boards or on-site sample walls in order for to you to approve final finish and color.

Some color variation should be expected due to differences in raw materials and minor batching errors. 

Our  calculator page is a powerful tool to help customers create small sample batches of colored plaster that, when measured correctly, will very closely match a full bag/bucket of plaster.

If you’d like to purchase a custom made physical color sample, or for custom color matching, please see our products page.
