Stucco Finish Question


How to achieve this finish texture?
https://ibb.co/9HJ07HD

We need to do some bigger patches. We do metal lath, scretch coat and brown coat. Then we usually use Quickrete white base finish coat, or maybe there is something better than this?

Re: Stucco Finish Question


Hire a Pro, beg him to show you how....

Long nap roller, really runny plaster, keep a "wet" edge, have an Exit strategy.

maybe practice at home....

U-tube?

call the librarian?

How does one bid a job they can't yet do?

I want to be a brain surgeon, can I practice on YOUR Brain? Oh, and I still want 50% up front, the rest from your executor....

That's a nasty looking color coat, some sort of stipple, think 4G's suggestions pretty much sums it up, except for the latter ones.........

Start looking at this guys stuff until you find a match. I can't tell from the photo what the finish is, but here's a dash finish:

I've watched plenty of Kirk's videos... I think its some kind of rough roller + runny finish to get this texture... Just ordered a few of them, here is a better video https://youtu.be/MywbnHoAXrg

Re: Stucco Finish Question


Once you get into rollers, finding the right one can be a trick. I have one that looks like it's made out of a bunch of Angel hair pasta that I'd probably try first but I don't get a good feel from the picture how heavy the texture is.

Re: Stucco Finish Question


Not an expert myself, but I know someone that does these kind of finishes with the roller, and he did tell me that matching in to other work is a bit like copying some ones handwriting.
Here's an example of some finishes.

He's better than my buddy who did stucco and plaster. My buddy wouldn't even do a patch, because his always showed as a patch. Kirk comes darn close.

I know the one you are talking about. If I recall correctly, they were loops, and kinda flesh-colored.

Correct. They have them for heavy or finer stippling. They're also handy when you're putting on a bonding layer of acrylic modified cement so the next layer has more to grab onto, which has been my usual use.

Yup. Back when I was taking on "all work" in remodeling, some nice person turned me onto them, and for a couple years, I used them a bunch.

I think you talk about these, attached. What acrylic modified cement and what finish coat product do you use?

Re: Stucco Finish Question


No, I wasn't kidding. Who wants a haircut at a barber college that doesn't tell the customers the cutters are students?

Some finishes might not be very weather resistant, especially ones created with highly modified mortars....

Great texture match, fell off first frost.......

Two possibilities, one, someone who has done acres of various stuccoes,in an isolated town, no other experts to consult... who needs help with one detail operation or A Jack of ALL trades that needs a detailed recipe and video to produce maybe average work, after a learning curve paid for by the unwitting customer....?

I can't tell over the InterNet which one You are.

Re: Stucco Finish Question


That's a great video to learn from. I've never seen it put on with a brush. Known as Tyrolean here, they normally use a flicker gun. I used it a few times, and found it takes a fair bit of practice to get a reasonable finish. At first when I first started the gun was throwing out big pieces on to the wall. Getting the mix a lot wetter helped.
It's a bit like spraying a car.
