Earth based plaster, also known as clay plaster or vapor permeable plaster are currently enjoying a revival, after a long history of use in traditional buildings around the world
It has been clearly established that no two clay subsoils are same. All subsoils differ with regards to the nature and propositions and grain size of particles of aggregate. For this reason, testing and sampling all earth plaster is an essential and integral part of the plastering process.
Here we show 2 sample mixes using different soil, sand, manure, straw, flour paste & casein.
