How to apply a new Stucco Acrylic finish over existing stucco porous retaining wall

Hello, in this video, we are going over an old tired, beat-up, stained cementitious color coat finish applied over a retaining wall.

In this video were are spreading a stucco acrylic finish.
So keep in mind the first necessary thing.

Pressure washing with at least 3500 PSI to remove all the dust, dirt, and grime.

Note: after the wall is immaculate, “this means absolutely, No dust, dirt, grime or moss.”

Then it’s time to roll or brush on the stucco acrylic primer that comes with your choice of Acrylic stucco.
After the wall or home is primed, you are ready to apply the stucco acrylic finish coat.

What is an Acrylic color finish that’s used for resurfacing stucco walls?
Good question. It’s sort of like rubber mixed with sand and color pigments.

Remember that acrylic stucco sticks to everything, so you must cover the ground well; however, no stucco acrylic stucco will adhere to a dusty surface, at least not forever. I mention this often as I get many calls saying, Kirk, the plastering company who applied my stucco finish less than a year ago, it’s now coming off, help…….
There is much prep work involved in acrylic refinishing over stucco walls. Allow this video to be your guild.

This video demonstrates and explains how to use acrylic stucco applied by hand. These are maintenance-free colored finishes over an existing stuccoed retaining wall.
In this video, we really do make it appear much easier than it actually is. Why?

We were going over a light dash that uses twice the Acrylic stucco.

Not only does this application require extreme troweling on pressure, but as I was floating, I had to push as hard as I could to fill all the void with this glue-like acrylic because the existing finish was a heavy dash finish.
At the end of this video, my own wrist and forearms were tight as a drum and a bit tired, which is indeed rare.

My daughter Madeline had to use both hands towards the end of this wall as the strength needed was a bit too much as she has been in Spain teaching English for the last year and lost some wrist strength.
Use it or lose it, we used to have fun here, plus the owner was a nice fella.
