    1. Just want to be sure I've got this correct, because I also plan to do shower walls in concrete: I should use Sakrete Type S/Mortar-Stucco Mix, and seal it with Miracle/511 Impregnator. Is that correct?
    2. For substrate: I'm going over wood walls. Wouldn't using Hardie cement board/tile backer be the right choice? Anything else needed before cementing over this?
    Thanks very much.

    whoa I haven't presented a tutorial on shower construction, just a few pointers. This is way beyond the scope of this forum. A better place would John Bridges forum or ContractorTalk.

    Backer boards are a fine substrate for thin set mortar and tile. They do not address making a wall assembly waterproof.. They also don't provide the support for a traditional scratch/brown/finish coat system that a stucco requires, expanded metal/plastic lath is also needed.

A brushed concrete surface looks matte compared with a highly polished or stamped cement.
