Re: How Do U Replicate Tight Texture On Stucco Finish?!


this is called Californian drag.

Do you need proportions for the mix?

You need to use only half of your trowel given that you have 15x4 or bigger(standard)

How long you been stuccoing?

It takes years to match someones hands..

tree fiddy I ll match it :P

It's called many things actually...light lace would be my description or some might call it french drag.

Actually very easy to do with your trowel tilted 45 deg and souped up finish coat mud.

Re: How Do U Replicate Tight Texture On Stucco Finish?!


I always thought French drag aka Italian drag aka skip trowel was this:




Difference is whether its up and down or on 45 degree angle (Californian drag).

My hand btw :P

C'mon Gabe,...skippin' and draggin' are totally different techniques.

I really believe people just make up their own fancy names as they go along.

BTW... I really like that texture of yours,...think I'll call it light laced, skipped trowel Floridian French stipple with a dash of horizontalism
