Where are you located?

Here in AZ sponge or spray the wall to dampen. Then we use some one coat with fiber. In fact the lumber yard here sells premixed and if you have that available then I would suggest that to you. Try to apply to achieve 3/8" thickness. Let dry a bit then using a damp sponge float, sponge in a swirl motion. After this has cured to the touch, spray lightly with water every few hours for about 24 hours. This allows for slower cure time so it will not crack.

After that you could use synthetic stucco finish coat, color coat or if it looks good leave it or paint it.

Once again this is in a desert climate here in Arizona. You need to know what mother nature does to certain stucco and certain applications in your area to make to correct choice!

Good luck!!
