Yes, it's easy to do but the look will not be as uniform as a painted wall and the colors will be more limited. I used dry pigments mixed with Lanko 110 Skimcoat http://www.en.th.parexdavco.com/product ... oduct=1033. I had samples mixed until I got the right mix of red and yellow pigments to achieve the color I was looking for. It's important to apply a waterproofing agent after the plaster dries to prevent dusting, hand prints, etc. and make cleaning easy. The overall look is far better than paint in my opinion and it will not flake off or fade with time. I also used a Lanko skimcoat plaster that already has white pigment added to it for some walls. It does provide a very smooth and uniform white surface that does not require painting but it takes some expertise to apply it properly so that trowel lines are not visible.
