All natural paint and plaster – VERY BEAUTIFUL AND EASY

Take a look at this beautiful, all-natural
paint. Its a paint that can be applied on any rough
surface, including concrete. It works great indoors and outdoors. Its very inexpensive. Let me show you how to do it. All you’ll need are three simple ingredients: The first one is clay soil You can usually get clay soil from your surroundings. Sift the rocks out using a colander. Then, you need cow dung gather fresh cow dung from your cows or a
nearby barn. The third ingredient is lime Purchase a sack of lime in the hardware
store. Or, you can also use wood ash instead. Here’s how you make it. In a large container you add: 4 parts lime 4 parts clay 1 part cow dung Mix well to obtain a thick paste. Moisten the wall and apply the paste over
the surface evenly. You’ll notice that its hard to make it perfectly
flat, there will be bumps and grooves like you see here. To fix that, you have to rub the plaster with
gloves or a brush while adding a little water. Here’s how it looks afterwards. That will already give you a good natural
paint look. For a more professional finish, you have to
wait until the next day. You have to water down the paste until its
very liquid, and paint the whole surface one last time. This will fill in small cracks and correct
some discolouration that may not be pleasing. That’s it! You have a very inexpensive,
beautiful look that will be safe for your health and your economy. Judge by
the results! When maintenance is required, just apply a
single coat of watered down paste. Instant repair, for a completely fresh look You can obtain many different colors by mixing
types of clay or other natural pigments. We hope you enjoyed this video, please like,

  1. What can the cow dung be substituted with? As I currently don't have much access to any pure cow dung. Would this be suitable for application on top of wallpaper or is it best to remove that? Any recommendations for a pigment to give a nice clotted cream end finish?

    Have a divine day!

  2. Would love it if you would share some of the "other natural pigments" you mentioned. Thank you so much for this great video! Thumbs-up, favorite, & already sharing it 🙂

  3. I love your video. Can you make a video showing how the paint looks when adding various colors of clays and minerals. Thank you!

  4. Amazing, Was this house built using the same bricks ( Compressed earth blocks) as show in other video?
    I have few questions, Could you share your email ID please.

  5. Why not manufacture and sell everyrhing in kits? Can you not rehydrate the cown dung from a powdered form? Collect cow dung let it dry then grind it down into powder and bag it up and sell it has a binder. Cob earthern structures could incorporate the cow dung to make the cob more durable could it not? Be neat to be asked what the walls of your house is made out of and you just telling them oh dirt bamboo and cow dung!

  6. Informational video sir. I am keen to do mud plaster at my home but I have some doubts.
    1. Will mud plaster work on already plastered walls?
    2. You mentioned in your video that after the first coat, "water down the paste" ,does it mean we have to apply the water evenly throughout the surface?
    3. How does mud plaster perform over the years? Is it water proof?

  7. Why cow dung? Anything can replace cow dung? This is not available in our place.
    And thank you for sharing I appreciate it.

  8. dear brother, pls help me learn waterproofing method for a small garden pond flooring and inside walls using lime and other materials and in what proportion, thank u for precious time 🙂 Jai Shree Krishna

  9. Hi, I might be late on this but I have a question. (1) Doesn't cow dung have straws and fibers in it, wont that make the surface rough. Did you sift through it before mixing it? (2) Will this keep a concrete brick building cool? Thanks

  10. Why am I watching this? I am only 12 years old, I don’t have the ingredients and I don’t even need any concrete lol

  11. How many years it remains as it is? Is it suitable for indoor? And if %of lime increases, durability increases or not. What %.

  12. I'm willing to try this recipe, but from what I researched until now,
    the earth/clay must require a minimum ratio of sand and clay.
    Gotta makes some tests before anything else. It seems like the conventional
    adobe brick recipe, which dung can be exchanged by some natural fiber.

  13. Thank you 'The Vedic Way' for sharing this.I am from Kerala,India.It was our traditional way to plaster walls with cow dung and lime.The rich used to have walls made up of wood.But the middle class used to construct their walls with mud.We used to plaster our floors too with cow dung.It will repel insects and can maintain the room temperature stable. It survived heavy rains as our homes had slanting and low roofs.The courtyards also were plastered with cow dung and in most of the families it was a daily routine. Now a days it is not common and everyone is using synthetic paint,concrete and the like.Now floors are covered with tiles,marble or granite. I think the non-availability of natural materials and the increased urbanization are major reasons for these changes.However, I am planning to construct a home with mud for my retirement life.It is much more healthy,comfortable and cost effective.I will use the tips shared by you for sure.

  14. Ohh…in rural india…it almost used in every house…its called lipna…in central india…you are just moroon…also add..little..bhusa…in it…for long lasting…..
