A beautiful surface technique with a metallic shine can under certain circumstances mean less effort than a classic stucco surface. With this technique, the stucco material is applied in only one layer, not smoothed and pressed as usual. This structure is highlighted by the application of Punic wax in which Pearl Gloss Pigment has previously been mixed. Although the stucco material itself does not initially shine, the wax and pearlescent pigment are used to make the surface shine by polishing the wax.
