I wanted to put it out there to all of you that Carole Crews, the renowned Taos adobera and enjarradras of Adobe Gourmet , who has worked with and alongside a long line of women adoberas has just published a book! As the back blurb reads "Open the door to self-reliance..create and maintain natural clay finishes over a variety of surfaces. Beautify walls or make works of art with natural materials collected from the Earth or purchased lnexpensively from ceramic suppliers". As a student of Carole's, I recommend her book highly , she opened the door for me to the world of clay plasters and clay paints. Through her recipes I have earth-plastered over adobe, made alis paints, made homemade plasters and clay paints from ingredients from the ceramics store. This book can aid the independent-minded self-reliant soul who inhabits any kind of home. The mystery of clay plaster over sheetrock is revealed through recipes from Yolanda Rawlings and Janine Bjornson. To buy the book send a check for $22 plus $5 shipping to:
