Stucco - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Stucco

    was curious to know if others in the past have mixed their own stucco or purchased it pre-mixed to finish the oven. I think I would like to mix my own(since I already have portland cement) and was curious if the following is the correct "recipe" that can withstand the heat of the oven:
    For a scratch coat, you will need this mixture:

    1 part portland cement

    1 part hydrated lime

    2 1/2 to 4 parts sand

    For a brown coat, you will need:

    1 part portland cement

    1 part hydrated lime

    3 1/2 to 5 parts sand

    Finish coat ingredients:

    1 part portland cement

    1 part hydrated lime

    1 1/2 to 3 parts sand

    I am also confused if I am suppose to mix a scratch coat, brown coat or Finish Coat. Or all three?

    I am also curious if a Finish Coat serves the same purpose as Stucco Paint? Or does the Stucco Paint prevent moisture from seeping in?

    I apologize if I am repeating questions, but I greatly appreciate any advice. I have never worked with Stucco before.
