How to float the finish coat.

When floating the EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System) Finish coat you will need a plastic float, a trowel and a clean bucket of water with a brush. You will rub the plastic float over the finish on the wall in a circular motion. Every few circles you will clean the plastic float with the trowel. You will do this two times the first time quickly with a firm grip and some pressure on the float making sure to hit every spot on the wall and taking any and all trowel lines away. The second time will be much lighter to clean up any imperfections. After the first round with the float you should make sure you clean the float with your clean water and bucket brush. It is important not to put the float back on the wall while it is wet.
