    I'm about to put the finishing coat of lime and sand on the internal walls, over lime hemp plaster.

    Can I use standard sharp sand from a builders merchant to mix with the putty?
    I'm sure the putty supplier will answer this when I go there tomorrow, but I'd prefer to be just a little less ignorant when I have that conversation!
    (I'm not looking for an utterly smooth finish, and will be limewashing.)

    Cheers, Stephen
