Tarelakt stone clay - Guadalajara

Recommended Posts

Stucco can mean many things. Portand cement, aggregate, acrilyc, and a bit of lime (cal). Or it can mean a very complicated and secriteve composition which contains marshmellow root, lime, and a whole bunch of other ingredients, resulting in a plastic putty, which cures to be extremely hard, and often gilded. Artisans of this trade were highly sought after in Europe, because much less cost than carved stone. The most conspicuous example a palace in Denmark, which escapes my memory.
