Quinn---AE is asphalt emulsion, and CD is the AOL( or internet) CDs sent by mail ad nauseum. So I use them as a base to paint on a coating of emulsion, then I can cob, lime plaster, papercrete over the AE as it will host most materials and sticks well. I send these samples top customers who are ordering books on the above topics as a 'hands on' example of what it will look like. a shake test is testing amount of clay in a soil sample. a clean jar with tight lid is filled to half with clean water, add 1 tsp salt, add a lump of "clay " soil, remove any leaves etc.... you are testing to see if it is all sand, silt or has clay in it. I have an online article in the local newspaper on testing clay...with images.. online building articles at the EUREKA REPORTER http://www.eurekareporter.com/Stories/cm-01050401.htm << finding and testing clay http://www.eurekareporter.com/Stories/cm-01190401.htm << low cost mixer tools http://www.eurekareporter.com/Stories/cm-02100402.htm Building with Clay-part 1 Ms. Charmaine Taylor/ Taylor Publishing http://www.dirtcheapbuilder.com http://www.papercrete.com Quinn wrote: > <snip> > > Would someone please explain what shake testing is?
