Tadelakt and Papercrete

Does anyone here have experience with tadelakt? Is it possible to make your own? I can't find any information besides how to apply it, not even any sources to buy it.

What about papercrete? I can find recipes and instructions for that, though I'm still not clear whether the percent mixes should be by weight or by volume. Can I use it to make dishes?? What do I do to make it foodsafe?

Thanks!

Bump for the Tadelakt. This has recently gained my attention.

Well, I was hoping for some reply filled with informative information but I guess because this website is popular geographically with a population that is generally unfamiliar with tadelakt lime plaster I will have to do the dirty work myself. Given its north African roots I will have to research this in another day but thanks for bringing the topic up.
