GSBN:Re: half cement/half lime plasters



Why bother with the cement? Makes a more brittle plaster that is more prone
to cracking and with decreased breathe ability.

Lime plasters are nice to use.  They do not seem to react adversely with
straw.

Adding pigment would be fine.
Adding earth/clay into cement based plasters can cause an alarming adverse
weakening reaction, and increased shrinkage cracking.
