How to Mix and Apply lime plaster finishes, eco lime stucco
-https://youtu.be/jI54QRx0_H0 Lime is healthy, lime is life
Howdy folks, For the past week we had the pleasure of working on this custom shower/ steam room with (Cy the owner of E Co stucco) as well as the home owners and Michael the contractor that designed and built this one of a kind bathroom. You will meet Michael at the end of the video. I will also leave his number as he is a talented general contractor. (And a real pleasure to work with).
Please note: methods of material may have changed since the time this was taken. Depending on whom you talk to or what Google says online there can be many different methods of prep work that will vary from when we did this video.
Jason and I not only show you step-by-step mixing but applications as well with a few tips when applying this Eco stucco LIME system. We recommend also that you follow all the instructions on each bag as this was our first time applying this product. (Although I have applied many other lime products) Again, please read all the instructions yourself so there’s no guess work no matter what plaster material you are applying.
At the start of this project Cy recommends a coat of Poly bond to embed the fiber mesh tape on all seams of the Wonder Board. (Under the tape as well as over it) after our coat of Poly Bond cured, we came back the next day to apply the thin set Mortar! CY recommends this although he does not sell the poly bond or the thin set.
I have witnessed many folks applying both these base coats in different orders and some not using either so (Again) I recommend a person research and decide for themself what prep work they wish on whatever backing they use, as old Kirk is an applicator not an engineer.
Finally, we were ready for the lime plaster finish system.
Jason mixed and I applied a base coat of DECOLIME plaster.
(It really helps to have an expert at mixing who takes the time out to read and understand each product.)
After the DECOLIME set, we came back and hand applied the last 2 final coats Of MURALIME, after the 2 coats of MURALIME had a chance to set I used a hard plastic trowel to buff, polish, and create some highlands. Lastly we applied the Natural black soap sealer over the entire lime plaster finishes.
If you wish to understand the technical stuff of why it’s resistance to mold & mildew or why it’s nontoxic and ecologically friendly, please go to Cy’s websites below. He also has a typical warehouse/showroom in San Rafael for you to view at least 20 different walls with all sorts of lime finishes with different textures ranging from very smooth with a look of marble to a bit rougher. You can of course purchase all the materials necessary for all his Lime products (even the tools) plus see colors for help in decision making.

Hello folks I too purchased some of Cys Pure and or real lime products, I have applied his product that has to be imported form Europe, I am a bit of a stucco nerd see my 700 videos on youtube and we’re featured on the 2016 addition of walls and ceilings also big deal.
What 99% of folks don’t realize with interior or exterior lime based products is they are only as good as the structure.
Just one benefit of genuine lime base cats and lime top coats.
Properly applied lime plaster creates a natural air condition system in you bathroom, kitchen and in my case attic bedroom, the lime has the ability to absorb all moister then release when dryer condition occur, hydration and dehydration.
Real Lime plastering prevents mold and fungi from occurring as its alkaline, Lime is a necessary mineral, Limes positive effect on the human body can’t be expressed or measured, Lime plaster absorbs many airborne toxins which is good for human health.
Cy is the messenger or the businessman bringing this lime into the U.S. you either order from Europe online or purchase from his marin office. I drive a hour to his warehouse myself.
Other good minerals, magnesium, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) Himalayan salt, yea, I’m talking about the real salt that has 87 minerals not table salt which well, I won’t go there.
lastly, unfortunately Real Lime plaster ain’t sheep, why most of my customers are hotels.
