Scagliola (from the Italian scaglia meaning "chips") is a technique for producing plasterwork columns, sculptures, and architectural elements that resemble marble. Batches of pigmented plaster (ground alabaster or gypsum) modified with animal glue are applied to moulds, armatures and wall planes in a manner that accurately mimic's natural stone and marble.
