Cheers perlite,
We have been using prompt with a range of different sands, much like as with lime. 2.5:1 coarse sands for coring out/ base coats through to 1:1 fine sand top coats. Casting has been at 1:1 aswell. You can use prompt neat too for bonding slurry costs, as an adhesive and a grout.
Finished top coat is a pigmented prompt blend which we have kind of re rendered everything with to act as a shelter coat.
