Painting stucco

I have a 5 gallon can of Pittsburg Ultra Solid color stain that turned out to be the wrong color for my deck.
I would like to use it on my stucco on one part of my house.
I am not sure if it would work well. It seems thick and durable enough and I would hate to have to get rid of it.
Does anyone know if this would be a bad idea?
Thank!

Welcome to the forums.

Sounds like a bad idea to me but you could always test in an inconspicuous spot.

It will probably be ok although it might not cover as well as paint would and may not hold up as long. Any chance of adding some latex house paint to it? Make sure any chalk on the existing paint is washed off first or bound up with a chemical binder ...... paint doesn't adhere well to chalky/oxidized paint.

Thanks!
The original paint is in pretty good shape.... just an ugly color.
Any thoughts on the kind of latex paint to add?

Most any latex house paint will mix in fine and give the stain more body. If you like the stain color - have a couple gallons of that color mixed up in latex house paint ... or you can modify the color by adding a different color to the mix. Just be sure you have enough to do the job as matching it later might be challenging.


The PPG Ultra stain is latex, right?

Ya, you can mix in any exterior latex paint, any brand. It will void the coating's warranty but then paint/stain warranties aren't all that good anyway
