We're trying out a new plaster today - it is a chalk - lime mix with polypropylene fibres.
It is a pre-mixed product by Fibrelime. It comes to site in tubs.
After it has been knocked up with a splash of water.
It works best when a fairly tight coat of approx 2-3mm. When we tried it thicker than this it was difficult to get it flat, as it was difficult to rule.
A finished wall (and the right hand side of the ceiling - the other side is lime-sand mix).
The fibrelime gives a really nice silky finish - probably the nicest finish of all the mixes we have tried to date. We are going to stick with this mix for the foreseeable future!
