The Cadillac of Plaster

by hoof (they/them)

To master tadelakt

the Cadillac of plaster

first

the first task is fast…

much faster than the last


Choose your hue

with which to imbue

inorganic goo

ochre? maroon? blue?

You cruise through a few layers

laid down under wood peel

yields a toothy feel

preened in steel

for a creamy seal

HURRY!

Wait.

wait. wait.

Now!

Palm rock hard rock

agatejaspermoonblood

stone and soap

slide up oil slick sides

stone and soap

slide up oil slick sides

stone and soap

slide up oil slick sides

a shower

wall

is born.

From muddled garbled marble sand

from limestone to lime to stone

a pristine gleaming sheen

From Dolomite to aggregate

from delicate to tadelakt

pat yourselves on the back

you’ve mastered

the Cadillac of plaster.
