    Any taker on this now, seeing as some time has passed? I am doing my walls in the next month or so.

    I'm no expert on this, but have seen some plaster come of walls. So I just think it must be done by professionals, and not the cheepest guy around the corner.

    External - 1:1:200
    1 packet of cement, 1 packet of lime, 200l of sand
    Internal - 1:2:300
    1 packet of cement, 2 packets of lime, 300l of sand

    Coverage
    Qtys per 10m square @ 15mm thick.
    Internal 0.9:0.9:200
    External 0.6:1.1:200

    1 packet cement = 50kg
    1 packet lime = 25kg
    1000l sand = 1 cubic meter
    Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

    Boil em, mash em, put em in a stew. You won't have walls but stews always taste great!

    I don't know, but you will have to mix with a bonding liquid. I have plastered painted walls, and tiled on concrete walls, and the basics is the adhesion between surfaces. The one being smooth and fairly non absorbent. Therefore, look for something from here
    I was the inspiration for Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness.....

    We were thinking of using Styrobond.
