Suggestions for a paint/waterproofer for the dome? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Suggestions for a paint/waterproofer for the dome?

    I have rendered the dome and soon I will need to waterproof it and paint it as I don't want to stick with the render colour. What are people using for this?

    Keep in mind that I have fired the oven several times and due to the insulation blankets I used the outside of the dome doesn't get any hotter than 40-50C degs so I don't need a product that can withstand high temps.

    I would also like the product to fill any hair line cracks in the dome.

    Cheers in advance for your suggestions.

    I used Drylock for the simi-flat roof of my saferoom. I think that it only comes in white, but you might be able to add a color additive to suit your tastes.
    I don't care what folks say behind my back........They are either braggin' or.......lyin'

      Hi Dan,

      The good thing about using render/stucco is that you can use natural pigment. I use a light yellow to keep the dome cool from our hot summer heat, dark color absorb heat and get quite hot.

        I was gonna suggest Drylock. That stuff stops running water seeping into basements!
