anyone ever hear of color staining new plaster? Apparently, the owner didn't like the white plaster soffits we provided and wants them painted. However, scaffolding is gone, and would cause scheduling problems to leave erected for extended period during painting. So, I'm wondering if anyone has experience with staining plaster. Any products which would be quick and inexpensive? We're in Hosuton, so don't know if humidity would effect it.

There are many cementitious coatings [it is assumed that your plaster is cement plaster] available which provide a wide range of color choices. Check out ChemRex’s Thoroseal product line.
