These guys go around the world detailing new (and old) temples. They build the structure haphazardly, but solidly, then plaster over it several times refining the detail each time. They use portland/sand/marble dust for all but the final coat which is just portland paste. I included a picture of one the plan's "details", you can see the finished work in one of the photos.

The building itself is bombproof, 8" solid grouted CMU with an airspace and a 4" CMU on the exterior, which will be plastered and detailed too.
