Concrete block finishing


I have a crawl space foundation & the concret block is above ground by three rows of block. Im thinking I would like to Stucco the block & then paint the Stucco. What do I use to do the Stucco. Do I use plain Portland Cement & sand mix, or is there someting else. Also do I need to apply anything to the mix to help it stick to the block? I've also recently seen a product that you can add to the stucco that makes the block waterproof. I would like to do that as well but I can't find any information on the product you add to do this. The house is in the South where we get cold temperature now & then and while we don't really get snow we do get a lot of rain lately. Im talking about South Carolina in the Upstate region.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Concrete block finishing


in the low country, we parge it w/white cement & color pigments, paint it w/block filler/color pigment, or ( if the house is done w/stucco ), they'll stucco the fnd walls too - same in atl,,, should be same in piedmont

I think I would like to stucco the foundation block & paint it or use a pigment in the stucco. But what do I use for the stucco. Would I mix Portland cement & sand with a color pigment or is there a Stucco material that I use. Im sure I can do the work, but not sure of what to use as this would be a first time for me. Thanks for any advice.
