Taos Plastering Workshop Part III

An experiment with coloring the plaster.

Still drying.


The noseeums were nasty and one bit Bonnie right under the eye so she plastered it, too.
Mixing manure into the plaster.  Ewww!  This goes on outside walls and doesn't smell.  What the manure does is cause a chemical reaction that makes the layer strong.

Hard at work making repairs.

Wish I had a good before photo.  Dawn did a great job with this.

Carole cooked really good meals for us but in this photo she is mixing up a batch of wheat paste for plaster.  There are so many ways to make plaster, color it, and decorate with it.
