We painted Sandra’s bathroom using natural paint. The recipe for the paint is in an earlier blog. The bathroom was built by Martin and is a load bearing straw bale dome. It is covered in the most beautiful mosiacs which my photos, below, do not do justice to. As its a bathroom it was suggested we first painted the walls with some kind of primer.
Here is Rakesh mixing the primer
You can see that the walls have discoloured over time. They were painted originally using a lime wash.
Here is Rakesh and Mauricio mixing the paint.
It is a bathroom so we are all wondering how this flour and water paint will fair over time . An experiment. It was so great to be able to help out the community in a real way. Thanks to Sandra and her household for letting us use their bathroom. And last but not least thanks to the painting crew! Hurray!
