American Clay is a beautiful way to add texture to your walls. We love it because it is user friendly and fairly affordable.
What is American Clay? American Clay is a natural earthen plaster made using a blend of clay and aggregate. This plaster has no off gassing and is 0-VOC. It also releases negative ions. It is breathable, dirt repellent, mold and mildew resistant. I have had many people tell me that a room with American Clay just feels different.
American Clay is manufactured in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Their mission is to bring universal awareness to the value of environmentally conscious products to indoor spaces! It is made from reclaimed marble sand and multiple clays. We stock three of their finishes. Loma™ is the basecoat for our Porcelina™ and Marittimo™ plasters it can also be used as the finish coat and is our most popular product.
So can you do it yourself? Definitely! One of the things we love about it is that anyone can do it. It is a process, but fun and pretty easy to follow. The nice thing about clay plaster is it is repairable so if you make a mistake it is usually fixable. Below is a short video of a wall we did in our shop. Take a look at all the products here.
