American Clay

The artisans at Mirabilis Finishes are certified, trained applicators of American Clay, a natural, domestic material to North America.

American Clay plasters are comprised entirely of clay, aggregates like marble dust and crushed seashells, and natural mineral pigments.

One of the oldest and most natural building materials, clay offers durability, sustainability and beauty unrivaled in other finishes. American Clay is dedicated to preserving and respecting the world around us. As a result, all of our plasters are clay-based, continuing the tradition of people the world over for thousands of years.

With our plasters, your walls will stand as long as your home or office does, removing the need for continual repairs typical of other, more artificial products. American Clay is dedicated to recycling and reusing content, maintains low-energy production standards to reduce energy consumption, and sources locally to keep fuel shipment costs low.

The longevity, recycled content and low maintenance of American Clay finishes allows us to contribute to the US Green Build Council's (USGBC) credits. Depending on your location and the nature of your project, up to eight LEED credits are available. Using renewable resources, recyclable packaging and containing zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs), American Clays Plasters will help make your project better for your home in your city, as well as your home on Earth.

Loma™ The Original Earth Plaster. Loma™, meaning ‘earth’ in Spanish, conveys the essence of suede through its sensuous matte surfaces resembling the textural delights of a Tuscan farmhouse. Made with reclaimed marble, sand, and multiple clays our patented formula offers a remarkable breadth of surface possibilities. Loma™ is also the basecoat for our other plasters.

Enjarre™ (n-har-ray) is our newest single coat ‘color integral architectural coating’. Enjarre™ brings a new dimension to the application of American Clay Natural Plasters. Created to offer affordability for large commercial projects. Enjarre™ provides a unique option to homeowners or builders where they can choose to start with a single coat of color integral plaster and later upgrade with a second coat of one of our premier plasters. Highly or barely textured. Never need to paint again!

Porcelina™ is often compared to the Venetian plasters of Italy. It is truly closest to quality of ‘porcelain’ ceramics–for which it was named. Satin smooth, easily blended for marble-like surfaces, Porcelina™ casts a spell of beauty … with an edge of contemporary, crisp lustre. Sometimes mixed with lime putty, Porcelina™ is the most frequent choice for formal interiors.

Marittimo™ A name created with the ‘mar’ (or ‘sea’) at its core. Maritimo™ uses recycled, crushed shells from the U.S. Gulf Coast. This plaster top coat brings the greatest textural surprise of them all: faceted luminescence produced by burnishing and light sponging brings back the spirit of the shells used in this formulation.
