Lime is one of the most ancient, versatile materials available. The variety of textures, colors and finishes that can be achieved with lime plasters is practically infinite. Below are some of my favorites we have done to date. Lime plaster gives a feeling of life to a space and is completely nontoxic. It actually improves the air quality of the spaces where it is used rather than being a detriment like most modern finishes.
This is a black lime plaster with an olive soap sealer applied after the plaster cured. Olive soap has a pleasant odor and silky smooth feeling.
Multiple layers of different colors can be built up to give the illusion of age also.
I hope this selection inspires you to look into this amazing material and consider using it in future projects.
