Ever notice how the new ceramic non-stick and copper non-stick pots & pans all of a sudden surged onto the market in the last few years? They filled the void in the market created when PFC’s were banned in cookware.(

Lime putty can be made with hydrated lime, salt will act as a hardener. The recipe is simple, water, lime, sand, salt if desired. Mix the lime and water till you get a "loose batter" consistency then add sand to thicken, or you can simply use the lime putty with out any sand.
The salt would be added after you have the consistency you desire for spreading with a stucco knife, it doesn't take a lot of salt should you want to use it.
I never mix this stuff by measuring I put 2-3 gal of water in my wheelbarrow then start stirring in lime from the bag, when I start getting trails from the wood paddle I use I add sand until I can just see grit in the mix.
If I'm not able to spread it right then, I add water until the putty is covered, it will store like that for weeks if necessary.
