Much More Than White - Workshop: Paints in International Style Buildings, March 15-16, 2018

You can now lick the walls of the Liebling House.

The myth of how white was the White City is once again shattered! This time into pieces of different pigments. As it turns out, apartments built in the 1930s were actually adorned with richly colorful walls designed to create an atmosphere in the rooms. As part of the paint workshop we held last week at the Center with German and Israeli experts, we studied the various colors and prepared a unique mixture of paint based on the original Yekke formula used in the previous century, giving each wall an individual character. We are excited to share the recipe with you: buttermilk (you can use either Leben or 3% fat Gil, whichever you prefer), hydrated lime, water, and pigments.
