Did I get it right? 1. You put acrylic paint in your basic papercrete mix. 2. You make the next to last coat a plaster with several components, including acrylic paint. 3. Your top coat is acrylic paint.
Your oldest building was finished several years ago and when you dig into it, the papercrete is not damp? If you scratch through the paint and plaster, the papercrete is still doing OK?
If this works, I will have to revise my theory (my comments are based solely on paranoia about waterproof coatings over materials that should not be wet, not experience). If it works, it works, let's use it.

> Clyde is right! I always use latex or acrylic in all my mixtures, if I am making a finish coat I use drywall mud, latex or acrylic paint, portland cement and fine sand blasting sand. Then after this has dried, I paint with exterior latex or acrylic paint. I have never had a problem with water getting in and not getting out. I would never use paint thinners like linsed oil, acetone, spirit etc., or oil based paints.
