Lime plaster

Lime plaster is type of plaster composed of hydrated lime, sand and water.

Lime plaster is similar to Lime mortar, the main difference is based on use rather than composition. Lime plaster is applied to the inside, and/or the outside of building walls to give a smooth finish before painting. Because it has toxic properties it also protects the walls from decay. Traditional lime plaster also contains horse hair for reinforcement.
