American Clay Enterprises of New Mexico,are proud purveyors of the Original Earth Plaster—a nontoxic, all-natural, USA-made plaster designed for interior finishes. American Clay’s mission statement proclaims that “Our mission is to bring universal awareness to the value of environmentally conscious products for our indoor living space.”
The plaster is meant as an alternative to cement, acrylic and lime plasters. There are four lines of American Clay plaster:
Colors of American Clay products depend only on what the natural world has to offer. Currently they offer 34 “Destination” colors and eight “Natural Depth” accents. Colors range from deep reds and browns across the spectrum to light blues and greens, culminating in a near-white plaster known as “Snow Canyon.” Each 50-pound bucket or bag of plaster comes with its own color pack (of your choosing) that is hand-mixed during application.
Speaking of application, American Clay’s website has downloadable .pdf documents explaining how to install their plasters by yourself. The process varies between two and three coats. There is also accessible information on traditional substrates, drywall preparation, maintenance and repair, as well as troubleshooting. American Clay also holds workshops across the country teaching customers how to apply their products and how to achieve the many finishes possible.
