Scagliola is a decorative technique that dates back to the 16th century, originating in Italy. It was widely used during the Baroque period in Italy and spread to other parts of Europe, where it was utilised in the decoration of churches, palaces, and other grand buildings. The Scagliola technique creates the illusion of stone surfaces like marble, limestone, and alabaster by blending fine plaster with pigments. Scagliola Plus from Stucco Italiano delivers the same beautiful result but with lower effort and cost, and increased durability. The original technique involves the use of a gypsum-based plaster, applied in large thicknesses.
