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.
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.
