As this bathroom was small, here is a much better video where we have lots more room for all to get a better idea of Lime plastering.https://youtu.be/KldxODNprP0/
With lime plastering, you apply a bonding agent to the sheetrock, then use a Lime base coat and finish coat over your basecoat. It’s done on the same day.
Plus, LIme plaster is anti-bacterial and mold-proof, along with moisture resistance.
FYI, most lime plasters say on the bags, “veneer lime plaster.”
So why is it called Veneer lime plaster?
The word “veneer” has nothing to do with a mineral but more a process or application.
It simply means a thin application of lime plaster being applied.
First, apply a bonding agent over the sheetrock. Next is a base coat of lime plaster; about 15 minutes to apply and 15 minutes to set, then the lime finish application, again about 15 minutes to use and 15 minutes to set.
As many email me to say! Hey, kirk, I can’t find the “Diamond Lime Plaster,”
Google, “Plastering yards near me,” as lime plasters are not sold at HD or lowes. The internets says they are selling it. However, when you get there, they don’t,
Could they say they sell it so that when you get there and find that don’t you purchase another product?
Diamond is simply a name like “Imperial” both of these lime plasters are made by USG.
If you can’t find Diamond, so what. Buy another lime plaster.
USG’s calls their Lime plaster “Diamond,” one has to admit it’s a clever name for lime plaster,
Why? Diamonds are minerals composed of pure carbon. It is the hardest naturally occurring substance known. Damned clever lime naming if you asked me?
Google, “Lime Plaster sold in my area,”
FYI, it can be named “XYZ or Blaw, Blaw, Blaw, Lime Plaster,” as long as it’s a “Lime Plaster,” you’re good.
