New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Elastomeric stucco paint

    Instead of adding colorant to my final stucco layer I'm thinking of applying elastomeric paint after the stucco has cured and dried completely. I think I can pretty much get the exact color mixed and the stucco will have a nice surface finish to it as well.
    Has anyone done this and is there anything else I should consider? Thanks.

    George,

    That's exactly what I did. I used Behr (Home Depot) Masonry/Stucco paint. Works great! I painted mine twice because we didn't like the first color we chose. Here are links to the first and second paint jobs:

    I wouldn't hesitate to go the painting route again.

      Re: Elastomeric stucco paint

      I used a locally-made "render paint". They had various options for texture; I went with the finest one. It was a lovely paint to work with; really thick, and it looked like you could eat it! I've never worked with paint that I wanted to eat before.

      The manufacturers of the paint just asked me to provide a colour from a big-brand paint colour chart and they mixed it. I went with "baked clay" and am really happy with it.

        Thank you Ken and Backyard. I will use this paint. It's also non-flammable so I don't think you can go wrong with it. Now I need to start thinking about a color. I'm leaning towards a pale terracotta.

          Re: Elastomeric stucco paint

          Paint is not elastomeric. Coatings are elastomeric. A fine distinction, but an important one. Paints do not dry thick enough to be elastic at 2-6 mils, but coatings at 10 to 30 mils do. Paint=coloring. Coating=finish+coloring. As an FYI, the darker your color, the less elastomeric the coating will be and the more rapidly it will fade. Stick with pastels and avoid blues and greens for exterior applications.

          The method of application is also very important for waterproofing: Apply such that the brushstrokes in any given area are made at right angles to each other, over each other. This will eliminate pinholes and improve the inherent strength of the coating.
