Janet, If it's any help, we used a paint-on waterproofing layer called Xypex. Something I just thought of while thinking over the whole thing of separating cob from its concrete foundation might be to put in a continuous row of stones in the centre of the cement, and fit flashing over the top with gentle persuasion from a hammer where necessary. I'm not even sure anything would be needed if the cob was free to breathe on both sides of the wall. Any moisture that wicked up through the cement would just dissipate through the cob when it got there, I think.
