*1: Shikkui is the Japanese word for lime plaster, a material for which hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide, or Ca(OH)2) is generally used as the solidifying agent. Lime plaster is used to coat walls, and is applied using a trowel. The main ingredient of Umaku Nureru shikkui plaster for DIY is hydrated lime produced by calcining and slaking limestones mined in Sano City, Tochigi Prefecture, where Nippon Plaster Co., Ltd. is located.
