Pool Plaster Mix

I have a job coming up where we have been asked to make cement shower surrounds. So in Lieu of using tile, we will do an integral color cement for the walls and pan. Altogether it will protrude about 3/4 of an inch from the drywall. I have been messing around doing sample boards using various white Portland/sand mixes. One of the aggregates I have is a marble dust "pool mix" aggregate. It is used in plastering swimming pools. I am just seeing if anyone has any experience with this.
