Stuc Pierre

Stuc Pierre® (more or less fake stone or faux-pierre) is a French gypsum based render procédé used to simulate – or more precisely to idealize – a classical limestone masonry.

Described for example by Blondel (1705 – 1774) but far older, Stuc Pierre® was widely used in French classical architecture and is present in most Hôtel Particuliers of Paris, in exterior as well as interior.

Nowadays, Stuc Pierre® is used in restoration of heritage building (Boston, New York area) and new classical architecture, both commercial or residential.

To summarize, Stuc Pierre® process use a high-quality mass-tinted gypsum render. It is applied on the support and perfectly evened. Once hard enough, fake joints are carved in with a chemin de fer (a specific kind of narrow plane) and then filled with white same render. After drying, a final sanding cleans the “joints” and gives the stone-liked texture.

We developed several versions according the different situations (interior/exterior, supports and plastering/casting/running, etc …. ). Concerning American market, the most used version are casting (for molding) or veneer (on gypsum boards) versions. More infos in Stuc Pierre Data Sheet.

For technical specifications, etc … : refer to each version infos (for example Enduit de Montmorency, Fond de Stuc,   Juss, or Moulex, …)
