Did you know? Stucco in its various forms dates back to ancient times. John Nash’s career didn’t start so well. He inherited £1,000 which he invested in building 15-17 Bloomsbury Square and 66-71 Great Russell Street in Bloomsbury. But he was not a successful landlord and the property failed to let. He was declared bankrupt in 1783. By 1828 Nash had spent £496,169 on the remodelling of

Buckingham Palace. Soon after the death of George IV in 1830, the Prime Minister – the Duke of Wellington – dismissed Nash from his post for overspending. As well as lime and sand, you’ll sometimes find hair as part of the render mix of stucco, while architect James Wyatt (17461813) apparently recommended the whitest burnt bones to give stucco added lustre and strength.
