How to apply acrylic synthetic stucco finishes
How to apply acrylic finishes, or what’s sometimes referred to as synthetic stucco finishes, this project is located at the Blackhawk Plaza in Danville, ca.
I took on this project because I felt it would be fun.
FYI, if you are curious about how we repaired and or replaced much of the styrofoam.

In this how-to apply a Stuc-O-Flex acrylic finish video, we were on the tail end of this project; In a previous video, we explained how to correct all the chewed-up and rotted styrofoam molds, so we apply a stucco mortar to fix it all. That video showing all the prep work before this acrylic finish is in the link here; enjoy.
In this video, we show the Best stucco acrylic stucco sold in the USA, bar none, as I had an obligation for a warranty to make sure my work did not fail, at least within my lifetime.
Why, excellent question, I’m responsible as I took on this responsibility. So when they asked If I could repair it, I not only told them I could but that they could depend on me to use quality stucco materials for its longevity.
Fortunately, I saw this job as super fun and not a bit complicated but instead easy as long as the best quality cement stucco and or stucco acrylic were applied properly. This is where my expertise in material knowledge comes into play.
It takes on average 5 to 10 years to understand basic plastering spreading or applying applications, some guys can spread for twenty years and still not have a clue, but that’s now what this story is about.
Back to Stucco material knowledge, that’s where it takes up to 20 years of hands-on training with a load of responsibility looking you straight in the eye saying, dude, you make a wrong decision or try to save money on compromising stucco materials to save a Nickle, you will be back, redoing the whole job, but this time for free, with a lesson learned.
I have learned already at my former boss’s and my own experience by troubleshooting for a couple of decades. Plus learning about materials in my own jobs at times.
My pal Dan Johnson who works with Stuc-O-Flex is the man to call.
Dan’s an expert with all Stuc-O-Flex stuccos and stucco acrylics.
His number is 425 885-5085.
If you are serious and want the best, longest-lasting warranty along with a quality stucco acrylic, he’s the man to talk with.
I sent Dan the colors they liked; he returned with a Stuc-O-Flex collection of Sunset yellow for wall number 107.
And for the arches or radius, Stuc-O-Flex, tan number 375, the many owners of this fabulous waterfront pond were thrilled the color was on the money.
I thanked Dan for that. After that, I had the easy part of just applying it.
Note: all acrylic stuccos have their own primer to be rolled or brushed on before the spread of acrylic stucco.
This includes the pressure washing to remove all dust, dirt, moss, mold, whatever as nothing adheres to a dirty surface, except for cobwebs, and they too can be blown off.
