In the shower room we are using Tadelakt plaster to all walls and ceiling, including the walls in the shower instead of wall tiling.  Tadelakt is a waterproof lime based plaster which comes from Morocco.  The magnesium board has been primed with Magnaprime and a base coat of Limewall applied.  Following this two coats of the tadelakt are applied.

Once this has dried a polishing soap is brushed on.

This soap is made with tree oils, especially olive oils.

The surface is then polished with a special stone to produce a shine.

A second application of the soap is polished up with a lambswool bonnet.

The shower after the first application of polish and burnishing with the stone.
