Next you would slather on the wet stucco and smooth out.
I have been plastering for 20 years and the owner of my stucco company for almost 12 years and I have never been required to get any license but you should always check with your local building department to find out what they require.

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.
