Montalvo or Cat Face stucco Finishes. Why does stucco crack?

Howdy guys and gals in this short video explains two things one is the Montalvo, California or Cat Face stucco Finishes as they are commonly names in different states, which basically mean the same finish. And the other is why cracks sometimes appear right after a color coat finish.
A cat face stucco texture is similar to the Santa Barbra Smooth mission finish. Unlike Santa Barbara you apply two coats back to back with a lot of troweling. With the Cat Face, Montalvo or California texture, you apply your first coat as you would normally, however when you apply your second coat you randomly miss a few areas or allot, the areas missed depends entirely on owner preference.
I have done this stucco finish with the cat face about 4 inches around and have also done it with much larger so called (Cat Faces) in the stucco finish.Please also see our web site at https://stuccoplastering.com
