Yes, nice pics,it's great to see several stages of a figure being made.
What is your recipe for 'stucco'?

Perhaps we have a language difference here. Isn't stucco a lime or portland cement mixture used to face exterior concrete and the like. Perhaps Alessandro's stucco is some form of gesso paste if its purpose is to give a smooth finish.
It's good to squawk!
