Original Plasters


Choose your finish from one of our five award-winning plasters: Loma, Porcelina, Lomalina, Marittimo, and Enjarre. Each plaster finish brings its own unique texture, feel and appearance.





Loma is our original earth plaster and our best- selling product. It conveys the essence of suede through its sensuous matte surfaces. Made with reclaimed marble sand and multiple clays, our patented formula offers a remarkable breadth of surface possibilities.

  • Loma is the basecoat for our Porcelina, Lomalina and Marittimo plasters.

  • It is also used as a second finish coat over a base coat of Loma™ or Enjarre™ plasters.

  • Approximately 180 square feet per 50 lb. bag (per coat).

Porcelina is satin-smooth and easily blended for a marble-like surface. This product is often compared to the Venetian plasters of Italy. The quality of Porcelina is similar to the "porcelain" ceramic for which it was named.

  • Porcelina™ is used as a second finish coat only, over Loma™ plaster.

  • Approximately 250 square feet per 50 lb. bag (per coat).





Lomalina integrates the best of two worlds...smooth porcelain-like finish combined with the luminous and subtle texture of Loma. With the application ease of Loma and the silky softness of Porcelina, Lomalina is a truly desirable finish.

  • Lomalina™ is used as a second finish coat only, over Loma™ plaster.

  • Approximately 200 square feet per 50 lb. bag (per coat).





Marittimo is a name created with the sea (or "mar") at its core. Marittimo uses recycled, crushed shells from the U.S. Gulf Coast. This finish lends itself to a smooth waxy feel or a textured sand finish depending on your choice of application.

  • Marittimo™ is used as a second finish coat only, over Loma™ plaster.

  • Approximately 160 square feet per 50 lb. bag (per coat).





Enjarre (n-har-ray) is our only single-coat product. This application eliminates some of the labor and cost typically involved in finishing a wall. It can be applied to achieve a range of finishes, from semi-smooth to rustic or textured.

  • Enjarre™ can also be used as a base coat for our other Original finishes.

  • Approximately 100 square feet per 63 lb. bag (per coat).



All of our Original finishes can be used with any of American Clay's color pigment offerings - all 224 standard and blended colors.

Textures & Finishes


American Clay Earth Plasters can be finished to look like just about anything. Below are just a few examples of effects that can be created with our products:


Hard Trowel: Using a trowel to polish the clay gives it a smoother feel.


Skip Trowel: By not covering all of the base coat and letting some of it show through, you are skipping as much of the top coat as you would like. It can be a small amount or a lot.


Sponged: When you use a sponge to compress your wall, it gives it a suede look and brings out the sparkle of the marble sand.


Burnished: By burnishing, or highly polishing with a trowel, you are giving the plaster a very smooth finish. This technique is most applicable to Forté Finish, Forté White, Porcelina™ and Lomalina™ plasters.

Plaster with Mica Additive: Mica is a natural additive that gives added sparkle to your wall. We have both large and small Mica.


Plaster with Straw Additive: Straw adds an earthy look to your wall, similar to adobe.


Artistic Finishes: Your imagination is the only limit to the number of artistic finishes you can create. For more examples of artistic finishes, see Artistic Information under Product Application or visit the Artistic Applications Photo Gallery.
