"Lime Suppliers"
 
   I am looking for the right calcium oxide (lime) for my first fresco. I am in Portland, OR. Does anyone know where to purchase a 50lb bag? I have struck out with all of the usual places...

Thanks!

Hi,

there is no "conventional" place to buy this lime
you can use regular type-s lime from home depot
you can find the video on how to prep it here:

however you really need a lime putty - you can buy it here:

   I really want to make my own lime putty with high calcium lime (aka calcium oxide, hot lime, quick lime etc.).

If anyone in the Northwest can tell me where they purchased a bag, I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

i dont think anyone (fresco artist) does this - it this way. This really does not worth the effort when you paint professionally - takes to much "artist unrelated" effort and for it to achieve proper ageing and plasticity you need to wait upto 2 years.

for experimentation - any calcium based (min 90%) quicklime will do, GenLime or Chemical Lime are the biggest manufactures.
