Many of us orient our professional life to the constructed buildings, we take care to keep them, to understand disease processes suffering and prescribe the necessary interventions. The skills required for this are enormous and require continuous updating that comes with the work of others, while sharing their efforts, they cede their learning. In my professional future I have always been interested in coatings, been used in ancient building, that have a dual purpose ? functionally and esthetics - which, together with its visual exposure, become one of the most developed systems in the traditional architecture. Within the different binders with antique finishes, stucco-and in particular the marble stucco- have been used in abundance in buildings of all ranks. From all the existing techniques, stucco fire has been widely used in the decoration of large surfaces with reproductions of marbles not inferior to their original models. Its peak occurs when these techniques are transferred to the residential sector, especially from late nineteenth century to the last third of twentieth century. However, although it is mentioned in much of the literature there is no research on them and that is the space that aims to fill this job, especially since it is a technique virtually abandoned from which its implementation details are unknown. With that purpose, a review of documentary sources to help understand the process and the timing with which has been developed is made. Observed the existing disputes in the documentary sources, the objectives for the thesis are set, about the meaning of the appearance of working with hot metal plate and what are the improvements made in the quality of finishing and execution.
