there is a recipe for parging material.go to a local masonry yard and they will sell you the sand that you need and also they sell coloring so you can match what is currently on your home. I forgot what the rest of the ingredients are but they will tell you.

we're doing a wall now,,, 1 type s cement;2 mason sand is our ratio,,, to be sure the color's the same, we'll paint the whole wall,,, no one can match color as the human eye sees everything differently & the technology doesn't exist to add pigment to duplicate.
