Can you Paint rock dash stucco?
Who sells a stucco called rock dash or pebble dash or slap dash?
"Pebble dash" isn't a type of stucco material, it's a technique for applying the stucco. Immediately after regular stucco is applied to the wall, pebbles or small rocks are thrown against the wall surface so that they stick to the wet stucco finish. Successfully applying the finish requires some skill and practice. Pebble dash stucco was particularly popular in mission/bungalow buildings of the early 20th century.
What is stucco dash?
"Dash" refers to a rough stucco finish created by throwing or blowing ("dashing") stucco or aggregate on the third (last) coat of concrete plaster to provide an ornamental appearance. In the first part of the 20th century, stucco was dashed with a special brush, but more recently it's shot from a machine, similar in principle to gunite or shotcrete. The roughness of the appearance ranges from "light dash" to "heavy dash" or "tunnel dash". The high spots may be lightly troweled to provide a "knockdown dash" finish.

Can you stucco over existing stucco?
The short answer is yes. Stucco is only as good as the substrate it is applied to, if the existing stucco is painted it will have to be cleaned, scraped and bonded with a bonding agent at the least and if the paint or existing stucco is loose or flaking it may need to be sand-blasted or pressure-washed. Stucco is porous and will adhere to any other sound cement-based surface.

Can you paint stucco?
Yes you can paint stucco. my uncle is a plasterer by profession and i have seen him work on many jobs. My advice is to first use a primer paint and then paint it the color you want. You can find these at any hardware, paint supply, or do it yourself home improvement store, i.e. Menards, Lowes, Home Depot,etc. i hope this is helpful.

Can you stucco over painted stucco?
YES, but first remove any loose or flaking paint then make sure the surface is clean and free of dirt, then you must apply a bonding agent (glue) a.k.a. concrete bonding adhesive, this can be done just like painting with a paint roller. MAKE SURE YOU COVER ENTIRE AREA WITH ADHESIVE BECAUSE IF YOU MISS A SPOT YOUR FRESH COAT OF STUCCO WILL LIKELY CHIP OR FLAKE OFF!

How long does it take stucco to dry?
Dry is not the word your looking for here! Cure is appropriate.. Stucco as with all Portland Cement based products depends on water in the mix reacting with the cement. As this reaction takes place the water is absorbed into the cement causing an "Exothermic" event [creating heat] and causing the sand and aggregate to bind together, basically forming artificial rock called concrete. Stucco is a generic name and denotes a fine sand mix texture but it has the same principal. Once cured, a majority of the moisture has been consumed by hydration process and some is lost due to evaporation. Most engineers call for a cure period of 7-15 days to allow for a complete cure. Premature hydration or evaporation will deter a good cure and cause shrinkage cracking. Even after the cure period [to dry out?] stucco will absorb moisture from high humidity or rain. This makes it WET again !! Allowing moisture transfer in and out of stucco is an invitation to a host of problems! If you paint stucco but still have not sealed it, moisture will bring chemistry out to the surface where it will blister and delaminate coatings. Commonly called "Alkali Burn". Waterproofing a stucco ASAP to control the cure, eliminate cracking and be able to paint in 48 hours, is what I suggest.
