Finishes for Mud Buildings

Duration: 2 hours

After constructing a wall, it is scrubbed down with a stiff brush and water. Holes can be plugged and smoothed over at this point. The result will be a smoother, more even surface. The wall is still bare earth though, which can be dirty inside, and prone to damage from water outside. A coating can be put onto the wall to seal and overcome these problems. In this course, you will learn different options for coating or finishing the surface of a mud wall or other mud construction.
