Employed for protecting and decorating ceilings and walls in buildings, plaster is a material that's been in use since the times of the Egyptians. What most people call "plaster" in the UK is usually looked at as the stuff which is used for coating the interior rooms of houses and buildings, while that which is used externally is referred to as "render" or "rendering". The most commonplace kinds of plaster generally contain either gypsum, cement, or lime, although all these elements pretty much work in the same way. A dry, fine powder at the time of manufacture, when needed plaster is mixed with water to produce a stiff, easy to work paste.
