want to do very small touch-ups? For example, touch-ups measured in a
few square inches.
Where do I buy stucco final coat colors from?

Most paint stores have color computers. Bring in a small sample of the existing
paint and they will mix up a reasonably close copy. The computers do not work as
well on rough surfaces though.
If the color was a standard stucco color and you know the manufacturer, you
should be able to get a paint code from them. They also sell a product called
fog coat, which is a cement based color spray that's designed to blend in
repairs to an existing wall.
The larger problem is that the existing color tends to change over time, so
using a manufactures stock color will never match perfectly.
You won't be happy with the results. Most people aren't skilled enough to be
able to blend their own colors. For example - adding white to a color does not
make it lighter.
