Plastering shower wall

Hi I'm plastering  a shower with one wall being block and the other is a newly framed wall with cement board. Which base coat and plaster do I need in order for this to be waterproof? Does the cement board require a different product than the block wall? Thank you

Hi Gregorys,

While plastering a shower wall can be done, its going to involve a lot of work and a ton of sealer. Plaster is very porous and that is not what you want in a shower. Plus maintaining the sealed surface is going to be difficult.
There are so many other options, tile, stone, quartz, Corian etc. I would consider all the alternatives before moving forward with this project.
