We've done a few tiny restoration projects and some new lime plaster work, including a bit of tadelakt as well as more straightforward stuff. There are very few plasterers around here who have any experience with lime plasters - the hay-bale/lime render movement helped for a while but seems to be fading. I'll definitely ask for advice when we get to our next job.

What's your source for hydraulic limes?

Hi bob. It is great to keep tradition with old lime plasters and motors. I personall found locally as English heritage is in the art of our location.i love working with lime. I use a lime source locally very high calcium fresh source singletons birch. I use different ratios in mix due to variable jobs I get.. The lime plaster jobs are defiantly fading there course here in uk. Please note bob I always use lime in undercoat render 3 to 1 ratio and finish I throw 5 kg lime per 20kg skimming.
