I'm having trouble sourcing lime putty or hydrated N lime to make a lime wash. Any pointers?

I bought some at Home Depot--not every store carries it but the ones in the older town (with old clay brick houses) did.

Otherwise, find a local masonry restoration company--the kind that repoints and fixes historic brick. You may be able to buy some off their truck for the cost of "refreshments" or they can point you to the right place.

I just used the lime from the feed store.
