I bought some stucco from home depot to fix some broken areas on the side of my house. The problem is the stucco is white and the side of the house stucco color is a dark gray.

How can i change the stucco color? can i use charcoal cement dye? Just play around with the mix until it looks good?

Cheers thanks.

Well i tried a few different cement colors but it didn't work well. The thing is every house on my block has this grayish brown color on their house. The stucco I bought is a white kind from home depot. Is their a dirt / sand base type stucco out there that matches this color that anyone knows about?

You'll never get a good match because there will be no consistency in the type of mix or water content, for example.
Why not just paint the whole lot?

Well i found out that stucco comes in white base and gray base. So gonna try to get the gray / brown base because I think it will match up perfectly. But I guess I will find out soon enough when i pick it up monday lol
