The second coat was troweled on smooth and left to set up for a while, then one of the crew
followed with water and a kind of 3M pad trowel to put a coarse texture on the surface.
Here's a closeup of the surface. We plan to paint the house with an earth tone exterior latex
designed for stucco and concrete. I assume the coarse texture will suck up a lot of paint, but
there will probably be shrinkage cracks to cover anyway.
