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!
