3-4 days from the smooth finish coat. There is a test you can run on the stucco to check if it's dry.

I ended up using a traditional stucco mix of lime, portland and sand. 3 coats with an oxide in the final coat. Went on well and looks great, no cracking (kept it damp for a week).

I also used 5 layers of ceramic blanket, then chicken wire then stucco. I replaced the vermiculite concrete layer with more blanket. I tried using a ridgidizer for the ceramic blanket which did firm it up but if I did it again I wouldn't bother - just use the chicken wire.

I was going to put a stone veneer on the outside as I have some left over but don't know if I will bother now.

Will post some pics when I work out how to do it!

How did your stucco go?

Did you follow "the book" recipe? Which base coat are you talkng about?
