Where is it applied? And how?
American Clay is an interior wall finish that is troweled on in 2 or more layers, with the top coat being applied to meet each client’s unique preference, making it an artisan’s finish. It can be applied over most hard surfaces, including drywall, existing paint, plaster, brick, cement and adobe. It is a perfect choice to “smooth out” Colorado’s standard orange peel and rough adobe finishes, or to apply over a brick fireplace for a completely new look.
Beauty & Versatility
Clay walls are simply unparalleled in warmth and beauty, bringing a unique sense of depth and texture to any space. Looks are endless and enhance EVERY stye of interior — traditional, modern, contemporary, industrial, zen, rustic or mid-century. Finish your clay to look like suede, model it like Venetian Plaster, smooth it like cement, or trowel it for an old world look and feel. View our portfolio to see for yourself.

In new construction or remodels with new drywall, pricing for clay walls is comparable to a level 5 drywall finish with flat paint. Clay walls only require a good level 2 drywall finish with no sanding, so you save significantly on drywall costs, making clay as affordable as a high end paint job.
When going over existing paint and drywall, expect clay walls to be 25% more than paint. And remember that clay covers any texture that exists on old walls (a huge benefit for customers that are not fans of Colorado’s standard orange peel or rough plaster).
Clay is typically significantly less $/sq. ft. than other platers, stuccos and wall paper.
In the past 50+ years, the way we have constructed buildings has changed significantly. Construction materials are filled with harmful chemicals and toxins that off-gas, buildings are designed to be airtight so toxins can’t escape, and to make it worse, we humans spend more time indoors than ever before. All this has led to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) listing indoor air pollution among the top 5 risks to public health.
