I did this entire house in American Clay a few weeks before we moved into our new home. It was crazy busy and insane for a month. BUT, I finished their home, moved into my home and all is well the ends well.
This was a beautiful home of a retired couple nestled away on 20 acres up in the country. They built their home out of concrete and only used building materials that were natural, non-toxic and green. Their goal was to create a thermal mass home, made without any toxic or questionable materials. The decision to use American Clay fit right into that plan.
Of course, applying American Clay over concrete walls was a challenge!! To be honest, it had only been done a handful of times though out the history of the American Clay company. I made many phone calls to the inventor of the product and at the END we had success. (Note: we did have some trial and error!)
Just starting out - Base Coat Loma in Austin Blush over concrete. Can you just imagine the difference the WARM clay made in this home!

You get the picture of the BEFORE shots!!! So, I’ll just continue the post with the Afters. :-)
I LOVED this bathroom and the claw foot tub. Can you just see all the yummy texture! It’s like butter :-)
