Painting Sandra’s Bathroom!

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.

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!P1310346
