[papercreters] Re: Waterproofing

How do you install duck and frog butts as sheathing on a papercrete

Can you do it humanely?

> The only really waterproof substances are duck and frog butts. You
can make PC less susceptible to water, but not really water proof.
Even a good coating, over time will deteriorate. When using PC plan
on keeping water away from the material and allow drainage if it does
become wet. This also keeps the cost lower as applied coatings will
increase the cost of the spitball bricks.
> Asphalt emulsion price is going up. This used to be a fairly
inexpensive material. However the refiners have found there is money
to be made in saphaula and also there is less of this being made
because of the effiency of the refinerys vs. 40 years ago

asphalt emulsion, clay, shredded paper, and sand. I've read that it
could be used for waterproofing and am wondering if it would be an
appropriate exterior plaster for roof and walls.
> Also, to those of you who've experimented with prickly pear paint
and plaster, just how waterproof is it? Is it something you'd want to
plaster a vaulted roof with, would it be waterproof enough for that?.
Is it something that you'd need to reapply yearly, or would it last
through multiple seasons? Thanks so much for any help! I really enjoy
listening in on the discussions, and can't wait to join in with my
own experiences once we get building.
