Stucco Finishes (how to?) - 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 Finishes (how to?)


    Anyone know of any good resources that show you how to finish the stucco? I searched the net and found "how to" but nothing that showed you to apply different types of decorative stucco finishes...

    I just want to avoid "slapping" it on.

    Let me know.

    Re: Stucco Finishes (how to?)


    I have seen a lot of different finishes in Spain.

    Some have used a very massive look, kind of like 1/2 oranges slapped against the wall.

    A lot of it is troweled on and then dimple marks are put on the finish using a round edged trowel. The swirl marks left by the trowel are a compliment to the dimples.

    Some use a brush on the finish after it has set up a bit. Tends to give you a rougher sandy finish.

    I've also seen it washed with a rough sponge which is particularly good for the setup of the stucco. It can start to develop cracking as it dries and this method helps float the cement into the cracks and keep the mix damp.

    If you can get the mix on the surface and keep it wet you can use about anything to make some kind of impression in the stucco.

    Maybe you can experiment on a side where no one will see and find a finish you like.
