Question Elastomeric stucco paint

Instead of adding colorant to my final stucco layer I'm thinking of applying elastomeric paint after the stucco has cured and dried completely. I think I can pretty much get the exact color mixed and the stucco will have a nice surface finish to it as well.
Has anyone done this and is there anything else I should consider? Thanks.

George

George,

That's exactly what I did. I used Behr (Home Depot) Masonry/Stucco paint. Works great! I painted mine twice because we didn't like the first color we chose. Here are links to the first and second paint jobs:

I wouldn't hesitate to go the painting route again.

I used a locally-made "render paint". They had various options for texture; I went with the finest one. It was a lovely paint to work with; really thick, and it looked like you could eat it! I've never worked with paint that I wanted to eat before.

The manufacturers of the paint just asked me to provide a colour from a big-brand paint colour chart and they mixed it. I went with "baked clay" and am really happy with it.

Thank you Ken and Backyard. I will use this paint. It's also non-flammable so I don't think you can go wrong with it. Now I need to start thinking about a color. I'm leaning towards a pale terracotta.

Paint is not elastomeric. Coatings are elastomeric. A fine distinction, but an important one. Paints do not dry thick enough to be elastic at 2-6 mils, but coatings at 10 to 30 mils do. Paint=coloring. Coating=finish+coloring. As an FYI, the darker your color, the less elastomeric the coating will be and the more rapidly it will fade. Stick with pastels and avoid blues and greens for exterior applications.

The method of application is also very important for waterproofing: Apply such that the brushstrokes in any given area are made at right angles to each other, over each other. This will eliminate pinholes and improve the inherent strength of the coating.
