Scagliola (from the Italian Scaglia, "scale"), also known as stucco marble, is a technique for producing columns, wall plaster, table inlays, sculptures, and other architectural elements in stucco imitating marble, which originated in Italy.
It is a composite substance based on selenite, glue and natural pigments, imitating marble, and other hard stones. The material can be veined with colors applied in the mass. It is polished with linseed oil for brightness and waxed for protection. The combination of the material and the techniques offers a complex texture and a richness of colors not available in natural veined marble. Comparable material is terrazzo.
It is simply plaster colored in the mass with natural or unnatural dyes, sanded with water with pumice stones, then filled with plaster and re-sanded until a shiny polish is obtained. Oil or wax is only applied after the stucco has completely dried to make it waterproof.
