In this video, I’m answering why they call the second coat of exterior cement plaster or stucco ‘a brown coat’ when it’s grey? I’m also showing how to apply a dash finish.
As I have seen less than 50 base-coats that were brown in color, I took this project on, not to explain how to dash or make money, but instead to explain what my pal, "old man Mr. Whitty" told me 40 years ago. It’s been known that the first coat of stucco is called a scratch coat and that the second coat is termed a Brown coat when in all actuality, it's GREY, now you’ll know the answer.
FYI, When I say, ‘Old man Whitey,’ I don’t mean an old white dude. Okay, I guess I do, but we were pals, so I can say this.
Thus when he spoke, I often imagined him explaining stuff without gas-powered mixers but instead plastering from a horse and buggy from the 1800s.
Now, I’m Mr. Whitty
Mark Fowler, former editor of ‘Walls and Ceilings,’ would know why they still call the second coat of stucco the “a brown coat” when it’s been grey for the last 150 years. 😉
As both he and his dad were Genuine and Genius Plastering contractors.
Fowler is currently the executive director of the Stucco Manufacturers Association.
