Walls, Windows & Floors: American Clay Earth Plaster

September 24, 2010

Looking to create the look of textural plaster walls but saddled with wallboard-clad interiors? American Clay Earth Plaster can be used on most wall surfaces (with the exception of wood paneling and other materials prone to expansion and contraction) to create the look of plaster walls. According to the New Mexico-based company, its products are nontoxic—components include crushed shells, sand, reclaimed marble, natural clay—and can even be used in damp locations (bathrooms, for instance). The product comes dry, in a pre-pigment form; you decide how much pigment to add according to the shade desired. N.B. Learn more about the product at the DIY Network. If you have experience with this product, we'd love to hear about it.
