Lucynda, You might want to wait till your kids grow up and you train them enough to learn to keep the walls clean? Then put a new layer of earth plaster over it. Rough it up a bit if you need it to key in. This is my approach and I learned that I don't get mad at the kids so much. Just resign that kids will dirty walls and everything else. I would like to know about the linseed. Though I would still be reticent about scrubbing earth plaster walls, and I like you, prefer a vapor permeable wall and surface coating.
