In 2010, Ben travelled to Morocco to learn this plaster technique, which is gaining in popularity all over the world. Using olive oil soap and a polishing stone. This creates a marble-smooth finish that is waterproof and extremely beautiful.
In 2014 Ben used this finish in an ensuite as part of an extension to a house in Hawea Flat.
