Plasters

Unearthed plasters are all natural lime plasters that allow you to achieve some of the most creative and elegant finishes available.  We do not offer traditional, trowel-applied clay plasters because lime is a much stronger binder that is significantly less prone to cracking and mildewing.  Unearthed Lime Plasters are durable, water-resistant, and naturally suitable for humid conditions without the use of chemical fungicides.   They come in a variety of textures (from smoothest to most textured: Stucco Fine, Smooth Lime Plaster, and Textured Lime Plaster), can be tinted with all Unearthed natural earth and mineral pigments (Stucco Fine by up to 10% by weight and Smooth and Textured Lime plasters by up to 5% by weight) and can be further customized by adding our Mix-Ins, including glass pearls, vermiculite, and muscovite glimmer.  For the finishing touch, Marseille Soap can be brushed on after application of all Unearthed Lime Plasters to create a slightly glossy surface that is even more dirt and water resistant than bare lime plasters. 

Like all of our natural paints, Unearthed natural lime plasters are 100% VOC-free and are made with natural, nontoxic ingredients.  

Apply with a trowel.  Some previous plastering experience is recommended, although you can teach yourself the technique by doing practice boards and watching our instructional videos (coming soon).  All of our lime plasters are shipped to you as a bag of dry powder.  Just add water and use an electric drill with a stirrer attachment to mix.  

To achieve the texture and warmth of clay plaster without the fuss, try our Clay Roll-On Plaster, a textured clay paint that does not require the use of trowel- just apply with a paint brush or roller.
