This recipe was developed by Frank G. Matero, Associate Professor of
Architecture in the University of Pennsylvania. Last August, I had a
chance that work with him and apply this recipe on the Neolithic
Period Plasters and Mud Brick of "Catalhoyuk, in Turkey". I hope you
have good results that we had.

    Grout: 4 vol. Fine sieved Sand, 1 vol. Slaked Lime, 4 vol.
    Mikrosphere, 4,5 vol. 10% Primal AC33, mixing properly, and
    applying by syringe.

    Mortar Filler: 1 vol. Hydraulic Lime, 2 vol. Rough sieved sand,
    5% Primal AC33 adding till the mortar become plastic, and
    applying by spatulas.
