Rodger, Yes, lime plaster will harden to a dust free hard surface, and it will do so almost imediately, although you should keep spraying it with water every day for several weeks. I use an insectacide sprayer. Are you sure that you are using mason's lime. You must buy this at a masonry supply store not from a lawn and garden supply store.
