Texturizing block walls

Does anyone know a formula for spraying block walls to create a texture? I have heard of a formula using portland cement, lime, etc to spay on the walls of my basement to hide imperfections. Or can you just apply a stucco finish or is there some prep work involved? Any feedback would help. Thank You in advance. Mary

Are these block painted or unpainted?

Painted, but spots had been repaired after a leak

IMO it wouldn't be a good idea to stucco, 1st it won't adhere well to the paint and 2nd moisture getting behind it may cause it to loose it's bond with the wall.

You could apply a texture paint [prime the fresh areas] We used to spray a solvent based exterior texture coating back in the '70's but IMO that would be more trouble than it's worth

I agree with marksr, I would just paint it after a preparation of any scaly areas. Better yet, build a wall over this foundation and finish it with drywall for a smooth and better insulated surface.
