How to Rejuvenate a Fireplace

Learn how to update a fireplace by applying a lime-pigment paint treatment.

Step 1: Apply the Lime Paint and Pigment

Tape off the walls round the wall in preparation for the paint treatment.

Use lime paint with a lighter Titan Buff pigment powder to lighten the colour of the bricks. Apply the paint to the brick, rub the paint pigment directly into the wet paint.

Step 2: Apply the Paint Treatment

The paint is brushed over the surface of the brick to form a natural, varied look.

After the lime paint is on the brick, dip a brush within the pigment and scrub the paint into the brick.

Step 3: Apply the Varnish

A final coat of varnish, applied once the paint is dry to the bit, can seal and shield the painted surface.
