Default stucco repair

or decorative plaster.
anyone know how they get that"textured" effect you see in ,maybe greek restaurant.or old stucco house interior? I've done some of this with a roller and joint compound. but this is something I believe was done by a stucco guy. I'm on a job I need to patch a bunch of this and I'm having a biotch of a time figuring how they did this --anyone--? Garret ?

i have seen it done it seemed that after the main coat was on and dryed they took a thin wet mix and applied it thick and scraped over it till the scrapper was empty

post a picture, there are a million and one different textures. Are you talking about interior plaster or exterior stucco? Is it painted or not?

Most stucco textures are done using the "skip trowel" method. But, as TunaBomber mentioned, there are mnay different textures so a pic of what you want would be helpful.

thanks guys ,
I did the job today . It was interior and painted. it looked like many jobs I have seen done with plaster except this had an unusual finish with sand and some brush marks (not from painting) it looked like something a stucco guy did. I patched it by putting a skim of joint compound mixed with moulding plaster.,then coating a roller with this mix and rolling over it. then lightly skimming a 12" knife over it to just break the tips off, not perfect by any means ,but very acceptable. thanks again

Yah the first thing I would have asked for too was pictures, as TunaBomber indicated there is almost as many textured varieties as there is people doing the work.
Generally when I'm trying to match someone else's work I'll do practice strokes over their work to pick up the flow of their wrists and arms.
Patching at times can be extremely difficult because not only do you need to know the stroke used, the tools used, the mixture used but also you need to get the right consistency. If that isnít bad enough you can also get into heavy two and three stage finishes. Then Iíve seen where an aggregate was used in the primer coat for added texture.

Iím glad to hear youíre pleased.....good for you.
