The first time I did some pointing on my old house , I mixed the Lime into a paste stored it in a airtight container & then run off the surplus water before mixing with sand & cement.
I need to do some more pointing (only a small area about 2 ft square).
Can I mix the Lime powder with sand before adding to cement or will I have to prepare the Lime as I originally did.
