Starting American Clay Enjarre on my Own Home!

I am so excited because I finally get to apply American Clay in my own home.  After renting for 4 years, this interior designer is ready for some fun!

I chose to do the entire main level in the Enjarre clay because it only requires one coat (instead of two) and I was doing it myself and on a TIME CRUNCH!

I am so happy with the end result, but if time and money didn't mean anything, I would still opt for Loma or Porcelina, at least in a few rooms :-)

I choose Caltrite and Agate which used to come in pre-tinted Enjarre bags.  (From what I heard, they no longer sell the Enjarre pre- tinted, you just buy the pigment or tint separately.)

Since I was doing just one coat, I knew I had to get creative with the clay.  I ended up mixing (on my hawk) both the colors and then came back when the clay was still wet, and skipped some of the Quartzine Enjarre on top.  I wanted LOTS of texture.  The more the merrier for me, although, a lot of my clients prefer the super smooth texture that gives off this rich buttery feel like this bathroom in clay that I did.
