1. Rough coat
1 part lime putty + 3 parts coarse sand or brick
2. Brown coat
1 part lime putty + 3 parts slightly finer sand
3. Sand coat
1 part lime putty + 2 parts fine sand
4. Paint coat
1 part lime putty + 1 part very fine sand or marble dust
NOTE: The sand must be very clean and dry at the time of use.
Combine ingredients in a trough and mix together with trowel or hoe.
The putty and filler must be worked together until the mixture is completely homogonous.
There can be no lumps of putty, even tiny ones. Cut into the mixture to test it.
If any white specks of putty are visible continue mixing no matter how long this takes.
Water may be added if needed to form a plastic mortar which can be spread onto a wall with a trowel.
