Building An Adobe Wall: #6 Plastering And Creating The Designs

In this post of our series I want to take a look at how we plastered the wall 
and Allison will explain how she and her sisters made the designs, such as you see above,
 out of adobe mud and mineral pigments.

 In the photo above Cynthia used caliche, a clay slip, and oxides on her burrowing owl 
with earring eyes hiding under the Mexican Hat flowers Allison created earlier.
