I appreciated your two messages, and so will ask another.

I am a novice when it comes to working with stucco.
We had our stuccoed house sandblasted (I think it was
a poor job ... big holes in the walls (even the
wood window frames got some blast holes. So now
I was so ashamed of the look of the front that I
(having VERY little money) purchased a bag of
stucco patch (20#bag) I mixed some of the powdered
stuff with water and made a paste (not as dry as the
directions said for patching) - and I used a paint brush
and brushed the mixture on the front of the house.
I did this last summer. It looks a heck of a lot
better than it did after the sandblasting, (I did
fill up the holes with patch before "white washing"
the front of the place. We have had a very long and RAINY
winter here in Northern California, and the "white-
wash" job withstood all the pelting rains.
Now I would like to paint the place. I liked the
"fogging" idea, but do want a light yellow color
to the house.
Having acted so independently, and perhaps recklessly,
now I ask for direction. I have had a dickens of
a time finding a "how-to" book on stucco repair,
repaint, maintenance .... can you suggest any?

I do appreciate any help you can give. I'm only
70 years young, and love to work on the house ...

Thanks.
