plastering, stuccoing exterior wall?


I have done many of diy projects, but i have never done exterior wall work. Please forgive the ignorance. Can you tell me what the basic steps are to plaster an exterior wall? i.e. do I put sheathing, paper, wire mesh and some sort of mudd then a final coat with knockdown texture? Please help me! Thank you for your time

There are a few stucco techniques. Old school would be to use 30 lb tar paper. Install wood lath vertically every 16" and put galvanized wire diamond lath over that. You'd apply a scratch under coat and then a top coat. The other way would be to use a synthetic stucco over a foam base. Try going to Youtube, I'm sure they'll have videos on both.
Stuccoing is a skill set that has a fairly steep learning curve.
