Waiting for the recipes

I have been using Surface Bonding Cement mixed with a Silka fortifier (1:3 with water) to increase waterproofing. I also have been adding some Terra Cotta liquid cement color. I was originally trying for a light shade of terra cotta but with the grey cement mix it dried to a mocha color. We decided we liked the color and decided to go with it. Not sure what the finish coat would be. What is used for that?

No you don't need a top coat over that if you already have the colour in the stucco. And anything silka is always good stuff. I'm sorry I didn't pick it before but I had put it down to a dark sand and the colour reflecting of the overhead cover. If be interested to see the effect when it wheathers off in the sun it should look natural and earthy and take away the starkness of concrete look.
Regards dave

I have had it on my mind all day on how I had missed the fact you had used a colour in you stucco. Yes you have a coloured cover and the stuccos wet and that has throw me a little. The Internet might be somewhat to blame. But still !
Anyway I work with colour , I talk about it in emotional terms to girls every day. But. And this is the big But.
17 per cent of all males are colour blind. That's roughly 1 in 5. Female are are about point 2 per cent. The girls talk about colour among themselves in emotional terms .... The blokes dress in browns and blue ... Cause they can't muck it up.
Getting a grey base and a mocca brown to match together is going to take a bit of a trick. And a we must bow to a greater power than you and I , the Wife,the minister of War Finance and all things that remain in our surrounds.
This is the colour palette I suggest.

Now if course it's lost something on the Internet and that covers has infused the colours with the red tones. But you should get the idea.
A darker tone the dome , a match to the dome , lead to a match to the grey of the base and if you up to it a lighter tint of the base , or a colour to match the firebrick entrance . All in small tiles sitting on the base at the bottom of the dome.
Anyway this is my take on things ... It might be a cultural thing ... You might have other thoughts .... But we both know ultimately we will have to be guided by She Who Must Be Obeyed , and well that's a good thing
