Check out venetian plaster. It's a bit more work, but you can add coloring to it and it'll stay pretty solid if you burnish it properly. Again, more work but worth it if you're going for a real good look. We did an "old world" plaster theme using this with a very very light purple dye to it, came out looking like a light purple marble when done, and just completely changed the look of the bathroom. Kind of a turkish bath look.
Say "Hi" to one of my best friends, Josie. She's a 10 year old Canaan dog (Isreali desert dog) and she's our protector. Nice when needed, and really really bad when she doesn't know you... like dangerous bad.
