Stone Tadelakt chalk plaster
- story by MaterialDistrict
Tadelakt is a decorative chalk plaster technique that has been used in Morocco for a long time. It can be loosely translated as massaging or rubbing in. The material is a naturally water repellant chalk plaster from Marrakesh and suitable for in- and outside use.
The plaster has a marmer look and is impact resistant after curing. Aside from use in bathrooms, kitchens, and fireplaces, it is also suitable to finish ornaments.
The special stone effect is achieved by polishing the material with a stone, prefeably a semi-precious stone such as agate.
