For a professional job, use a professional. But, for the most part, it's pretty easy for most techniques. Most people need a 20 minute learning curve. Just watch your uniformity, edges and trowel marks and you'll have a beautiful finish. Or just watch our videos. Always make a sample board first and start in the smallest area until you get the hang of it.
Usually with a trowel. Usually in 2 coats. Time can be greatly accelerated by spraying or sometimes rolling on the first coat (then back-trowel it).
Yes, very. It's zero VOC, hypo- allergenic, doesn't off-gas, absorbs carbon dioxide, naturally resistant to mold and expels excess humidity. You'll hardly smell a thing when you're applying it. Very dark colors might sometimes have an odor to them.
Cement stuccos crack more the lime stuccos, cement is not very vibrant, limited in color, limited in applications techniques, difficult to repair, doesn't absorb carbon dioxide, not breathable, not resistant to mold and usually, just doesn't look good. Lime Stucco is the opposite.
