Stucco
Bookmark and Share

image 1Stucco is traditionally made of lime, sand, and water. It was applied in three layers over solid masonry. Different styles and effects could be obtained by adding hair, pulverised marble or colourants such as ground brick.

Stucco or render is a material made of an aggregate, a binder, and water. Stucco is applied wet and hardens to a very dense solid. It is used as a coating for walls and ceilings and for decoration. Wikipedia

Stucco was first introduced in the later part of the 18th Century. It was widely used as it was a cheap alternative to the fashionable stone. Areas such as Bath that was near to the quarries used the local limestone but other areas used Stucco as it had the appearance of fine stone.
