How to make a plaster wall or fence Outdoor

Plaster or stucco, as it is called when used on exterior surfaces, is an ancient building material. Create a hard surface that may have different textures and finishes may also be applied with coloring or painting. Although it is called plaster or stucco, this is a mixture of cement, sand and water. Originally, the bonding agent was lime, no cement, and is used frequently today in mixtures. The form of stucco was used in buildings of ancient peoples in the southwestern United States, and is still used.


  1. Build a wall basis or near pouring concrete, concrete block or wood paneling. Make the base for concrete or wider than the width of the wall to give an area of protection plaster or stucco finish blocks. Make a wood wall with concrete posts and lined with plywood or chipboard; place the coating on either side of the fence.
  2. Place the waterproof membrane with construction stapler on wooden wall cover and then adjusts the expanded metal wall with galvanized nails and a hammer. Stucco or plaster can be applied directly on the masonry wall. Install the metal profile at the bottom of a wooden wall a wire mesh material that allows moisture to drain to get behind the stucco. Leave a void at the foot of the masonry for the stucco surface that is not in contact with the ground.
  3. Apply stucco traditional system of three layers or “single layer” newest; it actually uses two layers system. Or crack spreads first layer, about 3/8 inch (0.95 cm) thick with a flat rectangular bricklayer. Leave it to settle and scratches in the horizontal lines with the serrated edge of the blade of the trowel, broom or rake. Skip this step in the process of a single layer. Let the bond coat cure at least 24 hours, keep it moist during healing.
  4. Place the second layer, also approximately 3/8 inch (0.95 cm) thick layer of adhesive, this is the first, or base coat in two steps. Smooth it by rotating a ruler or a long table to the surface from top to bottom. Remove excess material scraped from the bottom of the wall or fence. Cure this layer for 24 hours, keeping it moist during the process.
  5. Finish the wall or fence with a layer of stucco plaster 1/8 inches (0.35 cm). Use a spoon rectangular or pointed mason. Stretch the material gently, and then add any texture; stucco fences and boundary walls are finished naturally in its textures, without being absolutely smooth. Let dry the finish coat and paint if the mixture is not colored.
