Introducing Fresco Lath - Clay (brick) Lath, a product that combines innovation with tradition! "Fresco Lath," is the ideal base or foundation for small frescoes, mosaics or any job requiring a plaster base. Fresco Lath is a thin wire lath with clay heads at the cross points. What this means for the artist and plasterer is that Fresco Lath provides perfect plaster adherence. Fired clay, when added to lime plaster, creates a chemical reaction that causes the clay and plaster to harden and meld firmly into one another, creating one solid, rock-like piece. This product creates the same hydraulic reaction developed by the Roman Empire to form Roman cement by using ground up clay tiles, slaked lime and sand - a process as old as construction itself and durable enough to withstand millennia.
