Polished Lime Plaster

Continuing the beautiful work done with clay plaster … this time with lime. I was surprised to see powdered lime being used instead of matured putty (though I’m guessing you can use putty instead … if you have it) … I wonder how it will hold up over time.

One advantage, at least for us, is that lime is easier to colorize then the local clay we use … though I still don’t have a good source for pigments.

I would like to have better tools (= Japanese trowels) for my next plaster experiments.
