Still, I think it can be tough to really get it with lime. But the more I work with it and learn about it, the more I appreciate its uses. Here at home some of the many uses include:

White washing.
With pigment and a binder it makes a very fine paint.
Glazing putty (mixed with linseed oil)
Linseed oil paint additive

I also use it with puzzolan, or trass, what could the English equivalent be? Volcanic dust which has a very marked effect on how it hardens - relevant for capillary moisture movement in supporting walls and masonry foundations.
