Plastering is certainly not a modern day innovation and was being done by the ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans many centuries ago. The substances used would certainly have been different in those long forgotten days, when blends of both mud and clay would have been used. To help prevent fires from spreading in 13th century London, a form of plaster was placed on the walls of buildings. As you will discover if you go to visit structures from this period, ornamental plaster of paris or gypsum features and mouldings were extensively used in Victorian and Georgian times.
