trawled around for this, can't find anywhere to buy whitewash.
look at this site though, and maybe google the recipe contents for ideas as to where to buy?

You want limewash.

Try here

Here but pricey

Looks reasonable

Is it a cob building? If so you need limewash like SaintGeorge said so the wall can breathe

Tis a bugger to use though as it will burn any skin in comes in contact with and you have to use many layers to build up the colour

Gosh - it looks more complicated than I thought. When I was a child I remember buckets of whitewash being sloshed onto the walls of all the farm outbuildings - no-one seemed worried about being burned though. Maybe I had better do some more research.

Thanks for the information.
