Question

apartment


I have some concrete walls I want to texture coat. I have a Spraying Mantis and I was wondering if you could spray a stucco mixture through the gun. Has any one got any ideas? Thanks

Actual stucco finishes are not sprayed. Much too thick to spray.

Drywall mud can be thinned and sprayed using a hopper and texture gun. Common finishes are the old popcorn look and various knockdown techniques. Perhaps you could properly prep the wall and do something like that.

I think your best bet would be to actually trowel stucco on conventionally if that's the look you're going for.

Thanks for the info. I guess I will use the mud. I live in the Virgin Islands and it is very moist from the ocean breezes and I was worried about that. But I hate stucco by hand.
