After the surface is completely dry it will turn pure white. Once this occurs, it is important to allow the surface to site for 12 to 24 hours to allow the stucco to react with the base and solidify.
Keep the trowel clean. While adding the second and third coats, it is important to work with a clean trowel. Keep a bucket of warm water near by to clean the trowel as needed and lessen the chances of creating unwanted scratches in the surface

Step 1: Preparation
IBecause Stucco Rustico is a mineral based stucco compound, I’ve first primed my drywall surface with a Quartz Primer, an Acrylic Fixative. and allowed this to dry and breath for 24 hours.
Step 2: Application
Apply a generous amount of Stucco Rustico to the large grip handle trowel using a smaller, flat trowel.
Step 3: Determine coarseness of application
Begin by spreading the stucco compound over the Acrylic primed surface in wide, sweeping motions. This one and only coat should be applied creating the decorative texture you desire. You can work smoothly, with little product over-lap, or create peaks and valleys with the trowel edge for a more aggressive, rustic appearance.
Step 4: Apply glaze to stucco.
Once dry, I begin to glaze over the surface with my 4 inch brush using the Velatura Glaze. The Velatura glaze is highly concentrated and can be diluted between 100% and 300%. I like to create a loose, watery solution as it tends to flow more evenly over the textured surface. Once the glaze sits on the Stucco it begins to absorb at different rates across the surface, creating the non-uniform look that Stucco Rustico is known for.
Step 5: Rubbing the glaze.
Next, aggressively rub the existing glaze over the surface with a brush to insure you've reached all the recesses in the textured surface.
Step 6: Buffing the glaze for plaster.
A light rubbing with a clean rag helps soften the finish and remove excess glaze build up.
