Clay or earth render is inexpensive and easily made and applied to a straw bale house's internal walls. Not only is it non toxic, but it looks great, has a virtually non-existent environmental impact when compared to other methods that use lime and cement.
This 8 min video will show you how to make and apply a clay slip, and make and apply the base coat; a straw/clay plaster. A sand/clay plaster layer is applied 8mm thick on top of that and finally the top coat has the desired colour oxide in it.
