Stucco and stone from  joint compound

Stucco and stone from joint compound


There is another photo of this corner in progress; this one is painted. I spread the wallboard mud/joint compound (two names for same thing) on thinly, then dragged a toothpick through it to form the stones. Some of the raised edges formed when making the trough were sanded off with an emery board when the mud dried and then watercolor washes were applied. The stucco texture was formed by lightly tapping a damp sponge on the surface while the mud was quite wet. It reminds me of the stucco finish on the house I grew up in. The whole outside was sealed with satin finish polyacrylic.
