Step-by-Step Instructions:

Make Grooves in Base Coat

With a scratch rake, make grooves in the base coat. These channels will allow the finish coat to lock itself into the base coat, ensuring a more solidified finish. Wait at least two hours until it dries completely.

Mix Finish Coat

As you did with the base coat, pour the finish coat into a large tray, add water and churn with a trowel until you reach a peanut butter-like consistency.

Add Liquid Coloring Agent

In order to reach a more desirable color, purchase a liquid coloring agent specifically designed for concrete and stucco. Add it to the mix intermittently until you reach a preferred shade.

Spread Finish Coat

Spread the finish coat with a trowel. The finished texture is contingent to personal preference. For a flatter surface, spread the coat on evenly.

Wipe Away Excess

Wait until the finish coat is dry, then wipe away the excess with a dry sponge. It should crumble off quite easily. Remove the tape and cardboard.
