This simulated stone stucco was hand tooled. Permastone was made with forms on the job, and Formstone was shipped premade. This stucco browncoat was scored to form joints, and the stones were finished with color cement mortar. I am always impressed by the workmanship required to do this.
I got a kick out of this. Branding for this simulated stone is "FieldStone"
This FieldStone house is more hand tooled stones. The finished stones are colored cement with Formstone-like colors. These stones were sprinkled with mica dust for a shiny stone like appearance. Check out the stones over the windows. With the fake stone and the obsolete awnings, this house is a relic of 1950's America.
I found another FieldStone plaque a block away. FieldStone was probably unique to Washington, DC.
This guy had the right idea about realistic colors.
Enough for now, I took these pictures within 2 blocks of where we were working in Northeast Washington, DC. Simulated stone is a form of stucco, and stucco was also used as a solution to leaking and failing brick work.
I just wanted to provide a little insight on how simulated stone was done, until it is lost and forgotten in the ages.
