The Color Purple
In the old days plaster was in fact plaster and it came in any color as long as it was white. As any regular reader of this site knows there is lime plaster and there is gypsum plaster. Walls in old houses are comprised of lime plaster while patching plaster and plaster of Paris is the much faster drying gypsum variety. Well, now we have something new and it isn't plaster at all. It is more like fiberglass. It sets in minutes and comes in a variety of colors. Elizabeth's choice was purple. Wanna see?
