Do I have to buy "stucco grit"?

Recommended Posts

I think you can use sand. If you have some wood filler lying around, I made stucco with watered-down wood filler and it came out great... Details here: http://www.emilymorg...om/blog/?p=3545

I spread spackle with the edge of an old credit card in a thin layer over dry flat primer and then pop the flat of that card over the spackle to texture it for stucco.

I mixed regular sand in my paint and did the foundation on my bungalow. I applied it with a sponge, and it came out great. I had thought about buying the grit mix, but then thought I would try the sand.

For anyone 'chicken' to try other things, which was me last year, I used the Greenleaf stucco on my spring fling (pics in gallery) and was very happy with it. It was beginner friendly I guess you could say.

Jeff:

Lol is it "Simple Fix Adhesive & Grout" in alabaster?

Yes, and I love it. The dollhouse I covered is a commercial dollhouse with a glossy baked-on enamel finish. I didn't even have to sand it. The "stucco" went on easily, I could make some corrections as I went, and then it dried hard as a rock.WONDERFUL! Oh, I did add a slight wash of a "sandish" color here and there to give it an aged look. It took it well.

P.S.

I put it on with a pallet knife and didn't have to do anything else to the surface (except the wash) to get the look I wanted.
