Many of the skills involved in external lime renders and mouldings have had to be re-learnt as the use of modern cements and polymer coatings have required different application systems.As we explored techniques and materials it became increasingly clear that there were and are systems to follow to achieve the  right results.  Here are a few of the features recreated using traditional techniques.
