american-clay-plaster.jpgIf you’re looking for a special finish for your lifeless walls, clay plaster may be the answer. It’s a great, cost-effective alternative to gypsum, cement, acrylic, and lime plasters and has the added benefit of providing the wall color too. This natural, non-toxic finish is easy to apply and results in walls that have a beautiful richness and depth. It’s even available in several colors and textures.

Some companies offer how-to videos for beginners, or you can check out workshops and classes for instruction.
