yep. not usually tinted with actual paint tho. A mason I work with a lot uses a tint in his stucco and nope I don't remember the name of the color system he uses. But it can be done.

Why are you needed to tint stucco?

To have stucco color made up you have to give the color to the stucco manufacture and they match it, its never exact. They usually only do it for large jobs.

MANY years ago, no, many DECADES ago I had an interior stucco-like wall patch to perform. I can almost describe the color accurately as kind of a pastel pinky salmon. I mixed up some plaster patch and tested adding some appropriate universal colorants. Couldn't believe how much it took to get the depth of even such a un-deep color. I finally did get it close enough (she was a very tolerant person)

So, can you tint stucco? ABSOLUTELY. can you do it successfully with universal colorants? Depends how fussy the client is and how deep the color is.

Can you tint stucco with paints?

Think about that. Stucco is a cement product, best performance found when mixed with water. What else does paint have in it besides water? What are you adding into the portland cement besides water? Are those other ingredients going to make the cement under-perform or enhance its performance?

Are you a chemist?

Assuming I know the answers to those questions, let me be the wise guy and ask you the line made famous by Dirty Harry Callahan, "Do you feel lucky Punk."

Cute I am although I feel a lil awkward it coming from dudes.
California gay marriage will turn federal and I could give a crap, as gay marriage is the least of my concerns if at all. My sister in law is gay and she got married and I support them 110% you started it

Thanks for the advice I appreciate it. I'm having the client pick an off the shelf color made for mixing with stucco. This punk doesn't want to risk tearing down and reapplying 1500 sq. feet of stucco twice.

sounds like a smart choice.

Remember to do tests to see how differently it dries from wet. And in cases like this, it is always best to have the customer sign off (literally, on a document) accepting the test color before you apply it.
