What American Clay applications are available in Canada? 

Loma is American Clay's Original Earth Plaster.  Loma, meaning "earth" in Spanish, is made with reclaimed marble, sand, and multiple clays. American Clay's patented formula offers a remarkable breadth of surface possibilities and is also the basecoat for our other plasters (Marrittimo and Porcelina - which are detailed below). For more information of our recent American Clay Loma projects in Canada, please review our American Clay Plaster Loma project Gallery.

Porcelina is often compared to the Venetian plasters of Italy.  Porcelina is truly closest to the quality of "porcelain" ceramics for which it was named, Porcelina is American Clay's most frequent finish for formal interiors.

Marittimo is named after the "mar" (or "sea").  Maritimo uses recycled, crushed shell aggregate. This American Clay Plaster top coat brings luminescence to the wall and is brought to life by burnishing and light sponging, revealing the shimmer of the shells.For more information of our recent American Clay Maritimo projects in Canada, please review our American Clay Maritimo project Gallery.

There are several different American clay systems to choose from, depending on the requirements of the client and the project. For example for chemically sensitive clients there are a few 'all natural' options as to which binders to use or bonding agents to use, plus the use of all natural hardeners to make the whole American Clay installation 100% zero VOC. If the project is a commercial space and the abbrasive resistance of the American Clay needs to be high, then there is a line of low VOC hardeners that give the plaster a truly durable finish. 

American clay offers a range of 110 natural colours along with 8 premix american clay plaster options. The colours are a blend of natural pigments of ochre, sienna and umber which combined with the American Clay to offer a unique colour selection. In addition, custom colours are easily achieved by matching any of your favourite paint chips with American Clay's custom colour matching option. The colour combinations are endless as multiple colours can be mixed and combined on the wall for a completely unique finish! To view some of these colour options please go to .
