How to achieve this stucco texture? --pix inside...


Ive removed a few windows in my house and also installed some french doors.
Id like to match the original texture of the surrounding stucco in the openings i need to patch. It seems to have some fine aggregate added to it to give it texture. Its like really small round stones or really large grains of sand. in the pictures its the white texture.
what should i add to the stucco to match this texture? Where can i get it....? etc.

also the grey texture is "texture paint" applied in the 60's or 70's, id assume.
do they still sell something i can use to approximate the texture?
thanks in advance!
Jon

Looks like a heavy popcorn spray-texture.

FWIW: That texture was done with a spray-machine.

Most of your pictures are Dash and are done with a spray rig. As AWBC said.

The one with the flat spots is knock down it can also be done useing a machine.
