Step 7: Top Coat
If your cement mix is too thick to penetrate the fishnet and adhere to the bottom coat, water down some of it and rub it in with your gloved hand. Put the thicker mix on top of that and create your final texture. For these stairs, I swept the surface with a broom to create the final texture.
When it hardens up enough to spray with water, try to keep it damp during the heat of the day. You should be able to walk on the project in a day or so.
